In my landscape paintings, I frequently convey a sense of calm and peace. This was my objective in my painting, Boats in Cove. My painting is a dominant cool temperature. It has little contrast in value (dark, light, gray scale) except for my focal point – the white boat. The dominant value is mid tone. The format is horizontal; this also contributes to a sense of calm. The right angle masts of the boat add harmony to the painting. There are few hard edges. Some people have described my landscape paintings as ethereal.
