Leaving Something Out

The Headlands, 24 x 36 inches
California Coast, 50 x 60 inches
Aqua Music, 20 x 30 inches

Here's a quote from the American painter Clyde Aspevig's website:
"As far as Clyde is concerned, some of the most powerful representations he developed were those that left something out."
He also says of his work that he tries not to let his technical skills (which are considerable) take over the concept for the piece, and he is conscious of bringing a sense of music into his brushwork passages. There's a video on the site, in which he talks about his approach to painting.
