John Weaver: A Morning Walk

October 3 - November 29, 2015

Every morning for the past year, John Weaver set out on an early morning walk armed only with canvas, paint box, brushes and a walking stick that doubles as a stool. This walk usually takes approximately 45 minutes and culminates with Weaver spending 20 or so minutes creating a picture on the 5 x 7 canvas. These paintings show the engagement Weaver has with the landscape.

In this exhibition you will also see Weaver's images using the iPad brushes app, electronically replicating the traditional painting process. Many other artists who use the iPad brushes app just begin putting the details down on a white surface. Weaver, however, applied layers of color in the same manner as an oil painting including varying the transparency and size of each stroke. Viewers of the exhibition will gain a great sense of Weaver's bond with the landscape of Lancaster County.
