Home    Historic Sumner    Paintings     Artist's Almanac

Here begins our reorganized website.

Artists are too often given to describing their work in terms of the techniques or materials employed in creating them. This, rather like the moviemaker who devotes as much time to telling how he made the movie as to the movie itself, is vanity, and the aura vanishes.

So, rather than classifying paintings as to medium, process or subject, these are sorted as to intention. The lines are transparent and overlap, but some hint of the sense of the paintings in this gallery may be found in the following five categories:

A Sense of Place
A Sense of Time
A Sense of People
A Sense of Beauty
A Sense of Spirit

Interspersed are the thoughts of poets and writers of the ages, together with a few of my own. I hope you will enjoy them.
