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

   This week, we wished to share a few of his ideas and work about Autumn with you.

    “Fall and winter are my favourite instances of the yr for portray right here. The colours within the Midwest are nothing just like the spectacular and good orange, crimson and evergreen shows that I had been used to portray within the hardwood and conifer forests of the Hudson Valley. Nor are there blue mountains rising as much as create the proper backdrop for any topic. It took me a while to adapt my imaginative and prescient to the subtleties of this midwestern panorama.”

   “For my part, Fall can be one of the best daylight of the yr in our latitude. The sunshine is now not overhead, however is available in at an angle, rising the shadow results. Early morning and once more in late afternoon the golden gentle garments all the things it touches with heat magnificence. Wealthy shadows tackle a coolness not current in the summertime, making an exquisite shade distinction with the sunlit world. There are such a lot of topics to color every Fall that I get fairly excited by it and it’s arduous typically to simply calm down and paint one thing. Nature places all her effort into changing the huge energies gathered in the course of the summer time into this unbelievable transitional miracle. The whole lot modifications and nondescript summer time crops abruptly turn out to be star performers as they alter colours or produce vibrant berries, like buckbrush and winterberry do.”
