Landscape Paintings by David Michael Jackson

Landscape paintings and abstract paintings wouldn't seem to have so much in common but they do. Distinct shapes in trees are naturally broken down into abstraction as the distance from the trees increases. The leaves, when not seen individually, but in groups, create abstract moving shapes in the wind. The better I get at painting abstracts, the more colors I tend to use. In nature the trees are not all the same shade of green, some are cool, some are warm. I tend to paint water a lot, maybe I'm a water sign but I like the reflections in the stream or creek always make a good picture. Water has symbolism, a stream is the passing time, it is a symbol of baptism and the birth of man. Landscape is something, like life, which is constantly changing. The same scene painted years later can surprise you how much change has occurred. Usually landscape art is a symbolic representation of a place, and is stylized rather than totally realistic. You can't paint every stick. Landscapes are sometimes created with technique rather than work. A sculpted mountain, a stream or a lake, and a happy tree lives here. It is better to try to paint all of the sticks rather than to use fancy brushstrokes to shape the world of the landscape.I have landscape paintings for sale at and at
