Don Haggerty     Landscape


Most of my landscapes have been painted in the open air.  In fact, my holiday tradition is to go out painting--to the mountains, to the water...I never know until I'm there.

Christmas day is my favorite, then Thanksgiving.  Few others share this tradition, so traffic is 'like the good old days', and once the right place is found, I can generally paint undisturbed.  The biggest challenge is finding someplace open for breakfast.

I paint from an intentionally simple palette.  Sometimes nothing more than red, blue, yellow, black and white.  I also paint with brushes whose touch I love--whose bristles are long enough to dance on the canvas, and whose thickness is too big for the  canvas size and subject matter.  It keeps me focused on what really matters.

Viewing my own landscapes is like reading a diary.  Each one is a page to be read over and over again.
