Robert Axelrod

I’ve been painting in the Catskills for the past 30 years, mostly in spring, summer, and early autumn. The visual attraction of the Catskill region provides abundant challenges for a painter. Making sense of the natural randomness of a motif and finding its rhythm or mood is a source of great satisfaction for me. Discovering and interpreting these distinctive qualities on-the-spot is a pleasure I have not been able to replicate in the studio, so I paint directly out-of-doors. I try to make sense a scene in a two or three hour sitting.
