Joe Webster , Landscape Painting in the Great Outdoors
Firstly, I crave being in the great outdoors, nothing equals this freedom, secondly I am a painter. The wild, windswept world is a timeless, incredible natural playground, I try to tap into some of that energy. Painting enables me to spend long periods of time quietly observing nature, I feel deep gratitude to be able to spend such time working in this way. I find painting outdoors humbling and enriching; it can be elating, it can be unbearable, this process gives my life perspective and purpose, it makes me feel alive, nourished and part of something greater and more important than myself.
