We started as mineral.

We emerged into flowers,

and into the animal state,

after which into being human,

and at all times we have now forgotten our former states,

besides in early spring

once we barely recall being inexperienced once more.


   John is getting ready for his exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum titled, “Transcendence: Reality in Nature.” In the middle of writing in regards to the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader by means of the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they convey to the panorama painter.

   We needed to share a few of his ideas and work about Spring with you this week.

   “Spring is a crucial interval for my portray open air right here. The sunshine remains to be clear and penetrates deeply into the forest because it sweeps its low angles throughout the panorama. Issues change shortly as timber reclothe themselves within the brightest greens of the yr and the pond begins to show over, altering its colour palette because it does so. The dense, obscuring greens of summer season haven’t blocked the structure of the panorama but and the air is ideal for spending lengthy hours standing within the woods. Quickly sufficient, that obscuring denseness and the warmth of summer season will pressure me again into the studio. However, for a quick time now—generally as little as two weeks—I’ve extra topics than I can paint. There may be at all times one thing stunning to be discovered to color in each season if one will get out into some small wild nook of city or nation and wander a bit.”

   We might get pleasure from listening to your ideas about portray within the distinctive mild of Spring!
