Inspiration of Inness

Inspired by Summer, Montclair (New Jersey Landscape) by George Inness
Acrylic on canvas panel 8x10
Collection of the Artist

I've always admired the ethereal nature of the Tonalists and in particular George Inness, so I thought I'd like to "paint like Inness." I didn't really try to copy Inness but to channel him and to learn from the master. I once attended a workshop from a Nebraska regional artist, Judy Greff, who told me if it isn't working just, "...spatter the 'heck' out of it." I like this corollary--just glaze the "heck out of it." I think that works better for me.
