Chee Kludt Ricketts

Grounded for many years in a style of traditional realism, today my paintings navigate between reality and interpreted vision.  My approach is
varied – both spontaneous and controlledwhere quick brushwork and manipulated light are countered by passages of precise rendering.  Watercolors and acrylics are the media by which I convey my enchantment with the beautiful world we inhabit.  It is my goal to express my feelings—to interpret, rather than record; to inspire, rather than simply remind.  Evoking the essence of the familiar, I seek to transport the viewer to a heightened appreciation of ephemeral moments in time.
