This painting started out as a plein air near a local golf course, and went through two complete make overs until I became happy with it. Heres the final version with the mid tree line being the only surviving part of the original scene.
"The greatness of art is not in the display of knowledge, or in material accuracy, but in the distinctness with which it conveys the impressions of a personal vital force, that acts spontaneously, without fear or hesitation." - George Inness
American artist from Fort Worth Texas, of dutch, and Irish heritage, with a focus on traditional tonalism landscapes. I'm infectiously drawn to tonal paintings for their absolute simplicity, and across the room conspicuousness. Most of my work is produced at home from imagination, and abstraction. While attempting to create a mood with lighting, and composition to symbolize the beauty, and great peace of nature. When I'm not painting, I'm a full time train conductor for the Fort Worth & Western Railroad! Instagram @nategradyart @nategrady My Brand @ogradaco ogradaco.com
