Gregg Caudell, painter

Gregg Caudell I paint on location a lot using canvas as a camera. Plein air painting is the zen of painting. It is being in the moment. It is a light poem reflecting creation from the mirror of a single soul. Light stopped in the fabric of time, becoming material. Starlight caught in the web of earth's karma on the eternal path of existence. I work en plein air daily as a gardener works his garden, in contrast to my studio work which is a reflection of what I've found most significant in those daily efforts. It usually has to do with light and substance. Light is the substance of the universe from which all is derived. It is a marvelous yet challenging privilege to be a painter. I love painting en plein air. It is a method that reflects today's world both internally and externally. Our internal clock is wound tight in a virtual world. Stopping that world for a moment and translating it into the eternal truth of a painting is a constant goal. Working in the studio is taking up more of my time. I focus on projects to establish a body of work that pursues continuity in both technique and subject matter. One painting leading to the next and the next and the next with occasional aberrations that become tangential with prospects such as portraits and the occasional one off piece that may be a fish or an angel or an angel that is a fish. Imagination is a tool as much as a palette knife or paint brush. Reality is a source of inspiration that I use as a point of departure to arrive at a goal that is a painting to share the journey with others. Life is short and if I can, I hope to leave some little impression on the life I was given so that others might know I was here and enjoyed the privilege with all my heart and soul. Many of my pieces are farmscapes as I live in farm country and am a farmer myself. For many years I only used horses so you will find a gallery of equine art in my portfolio. Having paid my dues hoofing it behind a team of horses for 35 years, I bought my first tractor when I turned 60 which the horses greatly appreciated. They now are retired and enjoy munching the good hay their tractor provides. Horses were a good life and took me many places. Logging in the Redwoods of California and driving horses on Rockefeller's roads of Acadia National Park. I now spend my time pushing paint around and hope to share what I find interesting and important in the world around me. I also fish a lot. My motto "every good fishing hole is a good painting", if I can't catch a painting a fish will do. lol About painting; When a painter paints the scene of a place, he owns it. Owning a place is as important as it is to have the next meal. In pre european days, all activity and culture was geared to the pursuit of food. The places that nurtured them became places to own, your territory, something to defend and cosequently take from those weaker than your tribe. A plein air painter has the experience of owning the scene he dipicts. Not only that, he packs it and takes it with him to be repeatedly enjoyed. To paint a place is to know that place, acquiring the visual vocabulary of that place. Doing so one is in harmony with the moment and has the opportunity to know the earth better each time he paints its likeness. As I get down the road of life I find the challenge and joy of creating is what motivates me. Sometimes while deeply into a painting I forget to breadth and get a rush out of the adventure of pushing on to the next idea, the next painting. We find ourselves to be blessed to live in paradise on a ranch in NE. Washington. I never go begging for subject matter. With 1000' cliffs rubbing shoulders above the Sanpoil River where once 100 lb salmon spawned and died. Today we work with the Colville Tribe to bring back chinook and kokanee as well as endangered red band trout in Betty's Brook that joins the Sanpoil River. It's the headwaters of what was at one time a great fishery supporting the native family's in the valley. We have great hopes that salmon will thrive to establish themselves above Grand Coulee Dam, one of the impediments that prohibited salmon from half their native waters that included the west slope of the Rocky Mountains at Lake Columbia, B.C. I look forward to being part of their return and do quite a few paintings about that subject. It's a spiritual journey both for myself and the earth.
