Artist Statement

Rory spends time between his home in Lincoln, VT and the beach of Cape Three Points, Ghana. While painting the landscape of Vermont, he focuses on the dramatic light, and space around the mountains and valleys, pivoting on his favorite Mountain of Abraham. In Ghana Rory spends time studying seascapes, village scenes, boats and the reflective light and movement of the sea and the life that depends on its abundance. “All honest observation absorbs into my successes a true vibrancy of life. The balance of the two places keeps my interest in subject matter fresh, while marking each year’s progress in two very different seasons.” 
I watch both my sons continue the artistic interest in bringing to life these moments we observe. It is a joy to have the privilege to create, and to watch my own children follow their creative intuition, allowing a story to manifest reassures me that I am moving in the right direction.
