I know! Now I want to see them in person. At first I was like, “yeah, they’re pretty blobs of paint.” Then I looked deeper and they came alive.

Twachtman’s paintings are exquisitely beautiful. He places just enough paint on the canvas to let us see a suggestion of form emanating from the light within, colors scraped down till only a hint of shade is left. If any more is removed from the scene, it will bleed like flesh taken down to bone. He makes me feel that my heart is aching but vibrantly alive. Amazing artist. Thank you for bringing him to our attention.
Sharon, I couldn’t have put into words my feelings for these paintings any better than the words you just wrote! beautiful. 🙂
