Joseph Burrough

Oil painting has always fascinated me from an early age. The rich colors, the depth of a three-dimensional reality on a two-dimensional canvas, the thick impasto strokes over thin oil washes, the feel of buttery paint at the end of a brush, the rich smell of linseed oil and the exotic fragrances of aromatic varnishes–all add to a full, sensory experience. I enjoy capturing the many moods of nature with a loosely-rendered realism, be it a peaceful, relaxing vista, or a fleeting, windswept moment. My goal, whether in the studio or out painting a “plein-air” on location, is to interpret what I see in a way that stops the viewers in their tracks and causes them to appreciate the beauty and majesty of the natural world in an inspiring new way.
