Neal Philpott



I paint landscape as a way to preserve or recall how a transitory slant of light transforms an everyday view into something special. I try to capture how light enlivened these scenes and make them transcendent for a brief moment. Capturing a momentary scene in paint saves that moment for me.

As a viewer, I become part of the painting when I recall my initial visceral reaction to the scene. My reward for painting is to see how overlapping patterns of texture and color come together to capture the whole.
