  • Honorable Mention / Landscape

Adagio is a painting about the quiet ending of a day on the marsh. I'm constantly struggling with trying to evoke the idea that this wonderfully large landscape delivers in a size that is manageable, when it deserves to be painted on an epic scale. The practicality of painting that large needs to be tackled and dealt with so that I can give this landscape the attention that it deserves. Adagio is a movement in that direction.
