“I consider myself a visual explorer of the effects of light upon our world.  There is no better way of doing this than for an artist to take his paints outdoors to study these fleeting effects of light upon the landscape and its subjects. This approach to study nature has kept me captivated for years and I’m not sure I will ever get over it! This is the energy and inspiration that I transfer to my larger studio paintings. I would call myself a realist and impressionist. It is not my desire to paint every leaf and blade of grass for the camera is a better slave for that type of work. I want to create a painting that captures the essence of the scene with the feeling of that day with its weather, light, and mood, with a particular focus on my state of North Carolina and its mountains.

I am on a continual journey of study and investigation, through art history, artist books, and art museum visits through out the United States. Some of my favorite artists of the past are: Frits Thaulow, Claude Monet, Henry O Tanner, T. C. Steele, Chauncey Ryder, George Inness, Sir George Clausen, Edgar Payne and the early California Painters, The Russian Impressionists, Pennsylvania Impressionists, and Historic Brown County Artists.  I admire many great landscape painters today, too numerous to count.

Life as a painter is an endless challenge to explore the world visually; my passion is for the one who created it and that my work might bring glory to God and reflect His creativity.”

Words from John Carlson on Plein Air Painting - 1942 December American Artist Magazine interview with Carlson -                                                  “When starting out for a day of painting in the open, first get rid of that mild frenzy that is apt to take possession of the inexperienced. Pretend you are a disinterested party. Relax, gradually slither yourself into the environment you feel to be harmonious with your in’ards. Don’t begin by boring into facts like a scientist.

Scott, thank you! I noticed you were painting with pap-se next week in Leipers Fork. I’m mentoring with Dawn Whitelaw and Bill Farnsworth for 1/2 day each. I didn’t realize you were also a mentoring. Do you have any availability? If not, I still like to meet you.
