Last week we looked at his work abstracting views and vantage points in the landscape. This led to work he does today incorporating 'abstractions' in more traditional landscape painting. The boat scene above is a studio painting done on a day DP said he was missing the water. Growing up along the coast these scenes were everywhere. He and I talked about how these traditional "scapes" are everywhere in small art shops in New England. But that said, these are not so typical of that genre. DP's abstractions of the landscape influence these more traditional compositions. Mark making assembled in patterns that become a scene. The boat scene below is a little older, but you can see in the reflection in the water much of the same observational abstractions in his earlier works.
