 “My subjects come from real people, places and things that are meaningful to me. They are familiar local spots or scenes from my travels, people that show a resilience of spirit, and particularly things in nature that I love. Choosing these for the painting process forces me to be more intimate with the subject and look at it with a deeper awareness, to capture the detail and sense of emotion in the world around me. In a sense, the process forges a new emotional relationship with the subject even more intense than the original,” says Dearing when talking about this exhibit. “My aim in painting is to offer viewers a moment to slow down--to absorb colors, light, and particularly elements of peace and joy.”
