We commenced as mineral.

We emerged into plant daily life,

and into the animal state,

and then into getting human,

and generally we have forgotten our former states,

besides in early spring

when we somewhat remember currently being environmentally friendly all over again.


   John is preparing for his exhibition at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum titled, “Transcendence: Truth in Character.” In the course of writing about the paintings for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader by way of the 4 seasons and the inspiration and worries they deliver to the landscape painter.

   We preferred to share some of his thoughts and paintings about Spring with you this 7 days.

   “Spring is an critical time period for my painting outdoors right here. The light-weight is nonetheless distinct and penetrates deeply into the forest as it sweeps its reduced angles throughout the landscape. Items transform speedily as trees reclothe on their own in the brightest greens of the yr and the pond commences to switch in excess of, changing its coloration palette as it does so. The dense, obscuring greens of summer season have not blocked the architecture of the landscape yet and the air is excellent for paying out extended hrs standing in the woods. Quickly adequate, that obscuring denseness and the warmth of summertime will power me back again into the studio. But, for a transient time now—sometimes as little as two weeks—I have a lot more topics than I can paint. There is constantly something stunning to be located to paint in every time if one particular will get out into some smaller wild corner of city or region and wander a bit.”

   We would enjoy hearing your ideas about portray in the special light of Spring!
