Joseph says he is interested in modern physics and the nature of reality combined with spirituality that he finds in nature. He is one of the few painters today who is a devoted plein air and studio painter who relies on his imagination, his memory, his observation and his deep understanding of his subject. He does not use photography in his paintings. He says that although the elements in each landscape painting has a deep personal meaning, equally important is exploring light, form and space. This is a chance to hear the thoughts and learn the approach of one of the finest painters we have today. We are all very grateful to Joseph for sharing his thoughts, teaching, and demos to the Light Chasers.
