Artist Statement for work by Ricky Sears
I create plein air oil paintings, watercolors, and drawings of natural and built environments. My colors and patterns are inspired by observed harmonies. It is typical that a sketch of a sunrise will result in a design composed of the colors I noted in the sky.
For years my art has been another product of my mindfulness practice. Simone Weil's quote, "attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity," resonates with me, and what can be observed in experiences invite the viewer into my interpretations.
