Painting 4 by Robert Adzema

Painting by Robert Adzema

I will be showing watercolor paintings of the Piermont Marsh. The specific location of these paintings are of the marsh from where the Sparkill Creek comes close to Paradise Avenue in Piermont. My paintings are all plain-air, that is painted on location.

This spot has a great deal of power and mystery for me and I have been painting it for years. Painting the same location, much as Monet did with his waterlilies or haystacks, offers me a familiarity with landscape so that I can impart more spontaneous expression to individual paintings. These are my " Paradise in Piermont" paintings.
