Fresh and simple yet a celebration on its own. Many things to be thankful for, freedom is one of them. This project of small paintings in oil, is a new found freedom and pursuit of a larger one. John Scott calls it moving between languages in the studio, working in multi media. Being able to express no matter what materials are at hand. Some ideas take steel, others a whisper of ink, still others, a printing press. Some may just take a few berries artfully arranged on a day we celebrate forming a free country. Coaxing light and color into an idea, the freedom to do that endlessly in many forms, that's something worth celebrating too.
