The quiet simplicity of the settings is deceptive; there is nice complexity in these renderings. A good example is the subtle geometry of Middle Colony Creek, created with strong vertical strokes of grass blades in the foreground intersecting the gentle round ripples of the pond in the background. In South Colony Creek Where It Runs Under The Road, the motion inferred by a lively rhythm of whites lends a textural quality that gives an almost a mixed-media look to the painting. His aspens have a playful quality different from the landscapes: with lighter and brighter colors, his light-handed definition produces an equal light-heartedness in the viewer.
I love this book; it really holds up to repeated viewing. Each time I take a trip to the Westcliffe on these pages, I come away with something I hadn't noticed before. A lovely experience.
