Sometimes a quick study or plein air painting like this can be the motivation for a whole series of new paintings. Each time it is a little different and as my eye drifts over the forms and undulations of the land, takes in the weight of moisture-laden skies, a new feeling comes over me - a kind of joy that inspires my painters' heart. Exploring and working along the Eastern Shore like this has been for me a continued experience of discovery and joy. Even going back to some of the same places reveals new ideas and I am nearly always faced with exciting images from which to work. One of these days I hope to take a month off and spend the time painting along the coast - always a major source of inspiration for me. There is always so much more to see and my eye is eager for the next experience. So much so that I could spend the rest of my life working this way without ever coming to an end. This small oil study is about 5" X 7".
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
