Along Rte 5 in Fairlee, Acrylic Painting
A former architect, Jon paints from his studio in North Thetford with two mediums: soft pastels while working outdoors and acrylic paints when in his studio. He seeks to to keep a play of color and visible application throughout his working process, striving for an immediacy and freshness which he enjoys.
Much of Jon’s work is imaginary, or remembered. He paints well-used objects, small toys, stuffed animals. Though he makes figurative and landscape paintings, that imagery is usually motivated by other ideas he is working toward: humor, hope, or, with Covid, isolation and distance.
