I continue to work in my studio on new paintings and updating others. It a cosy feeling when you are working on spring landscapes with lovely greens and blues when outside it is minus zero or below here in Quebec .
Recently, I have been looking at the paintings of Neo Expressionist Danish painter Per Kirkeby ( September 1, 1938-May 9, 2018). I am attracted to his paintings for their earthy tones which correspond to the natural tones of our landscapes. Here is a quote from him ” My canvas is the plot of land and my colours- that is, the matter of paint itself- are the soil, the flower beds, with their different components and varying textures”. Simply stated but it does explain his works.
I like to “top up my painting mind” by looking at works I have a sensitivity for and Per Kirkeby is one of those artists.
Here are two recently completed 2019 oil paintings.
