Favorite paintings

John Fincher is a Santa Fe based painter whose work I've admired for twenty-plus years. His textures and paint handling can only be seen "in person" to be fully appreciated.
His subject matter ranges from expansive landscapes, such as "Los Ojos", oil, 48 by 36 inches, to intimate objects like shaving brushes, "Arch Brush No. 5", oil, 10 by 8 inches.

A series based on branches shows a more minimalist, abstract approach to natural world objects.

Michael and I saw his work last time were in Santa Fe at either Lew Allen or Gerald Peters. Very strong. Really like his landscapes.

His work was in LewAllen when I first encountered it, then he moved to Gerald Peters, and now I think he's back at LewAllen.
