Harry Stooshinoff

I love these little works by Harry Stooshinoff, a canadian painter of mainly landscapes. He says on his blog that he goes out and quickly sketches a composition that catches his eye and then comes back to the studio and works primarily from the memory of looking and drawing. I think this is really palpable in the way he reduces the images to major relationships and confident brushstrokes. However, they all seem to have poignant, odd little details that make them so wonderful...I know the exact feeling of remembering these little things when you go to paint from memory. His works are never generalized or repeated, all of them feel like fresh investigations. And one of the best things is they are affordable and for sale on his etsy site! I can't wait until I have a few dollars to purchase a few of these and support the artists whose work I love!
