Paintings

March 16 - April 16, 2011
PAUL DONALDSON


Although painted in a naturalistic style, I am taken by atmospheric effects, the significance of light and metaphysical depth rather than the precise rendering of the objects.  I find harmony in the reality of nature, the simple life of villagers and small details of city life.  Also, the tradition of Mexican Ex Votos as a testimony to later visitors inspires the work.  The images are filtered through memories, drawings and photos as starting points.  I hope for a timeless quiet and a balanced composition.
