PM Shore

I paint abstract landscapes in mixed media using acrylics and an assortment of natural materials. As I sketch and photograph in the outdoors I gather materials (leaves, sand, shells, plants, dirt) that are innate to the habitat of each location and pertinent to the painting. These materials are turned into colors and textures by pounding, grinding and boiling; then, cataloged and stored in preparation for use in that piece. Although abstract, I do employ a component of perceptive content. By underpainting in a light wash of plant dye, I determine a composition through shapes and colors, then overpaint in acrylics and continue abstracting the image to achieve an emotional association between the image and the viewer. I add accents in natural materials to intensify that connection to the viewer through the inherent instincts that recognize color, texture and form as a language, opening imagination and thought.
