|Roy Perkinson talks about his experiences painting on Monhegan Island, Maine|
It was a pleasure to hear artist
Roy Perkinson speak on his creative process in the gallery last weekend.
He told one story about his repeated attempts to capture a particular 'mood of light' in one painting, and how, by giving up in frustration, he was able to throw out all his preconceived ideas, start fresh, and try a completely different approach.
The resulting watercolor, Foothills of Monte Amiata, is rich with soft wonderful color, and a glow that makes it one of our (many) favorites in the exhibition.
