Rush Brown

Artist’s statement

While my Artistic concerns are diverse and lead me in many directions, much of my painting
centers on observations of my immediate environment. The two paintings, Called Away and
the Knutsen were painted while living in full view of the Portland waterfront, from 2001 –
2013. Alas due to neighborhood development, the views are gone and I have moved.
However I continue to paint the harbor at water level, where I spend hours enjoying the
diverse and lively activity of boats in their varying pursuits and proportions.
