Trip in Maine

 

This series is a result of studying the old masters…. One day, I was learning about Claude Monet, the leading public figure of the Impressionist Movement, and made this rough calculation: Monet started painting when he was 15 years old, and did so until his death at 86 years old. That is 70 years of painting(!). He is credited with some 2,500 paintings, pastels, and drawings(!!). So on average, he produced 1.5 paintings a week(!!!). That is crazy - other masters like Manet generally created 3 paintings a year.

Monet’s prolific style resulted in several well-known series, where he would paint the same thing at many different times during the day at different times during the year. I thought it was such a great idea, because it would allow me to go deeper and find the right balance between surprising the viewer’s eye and keeping the painting aesthetically pleasing.

Have you ever sat in one spot for so long, you saw the landscape change in front of you? What did you notice?
