Julie Houck | Points of Departure

 

Artist Statement

Working from direct observation in nature offers a myriad of visual possibilities. These small studies done in the field, en plein air, capture a reactive and responsive interpretation of a scene’s essence. They go beyond the literal view.

Although they stand alone as finished paintings in and of themselves, they also serve as inspiration, the “points of departure,” for the larger and more contemporary works painted in the studio.
