Michael’s style transcends traditional impressionism. His works have a haunting quality of ethereal stillness that transports the viewer to a different dimension. Michael often states that impressionist landscape painters fall into one of two categories: experiential or fantasy. Experiential painters are “gatherers.” The source of their inspiration is the culmination of their visual experiences. Fantasy painters, however, create imagery from their mind….their imagination…..embellishing the imagery for affect and emotional impact. Michael uses a blend of each with a greater emphasis on the fantasy component. The execution of his paintings comes from the mind in what Michael often refers to as “planned expressionistic accidents” from stored images of scenes he has observed in nature and embellished by his own imagination.
