Duesberry | Maine Bog Triptych |  Oil on linen | 40 x 180″

“My instinctual search of the Maine Coastal landscape in the past 5 decades for subjects en plein air relating to aesthetic elements which fascinate me, has given me peak experiences unattainable anywhere else.  Manmade traces seem to have been gentle on the landscape, and the geometry I seek to uncover in the land is thus often aided by structures, dwellings within the darkly forested sites or detritus on the beaches. My recent compositions of Maine show less struggle with building abstraction, whether stern hard rock or limpid water, and, therefore more of a load of deep feelings, both current and remembered, articulated and inchoate, that make me want to paint this particular place called Maine”
