John MacDonald

Local artist John MacDonald paints landscapes of the Berkshires and guides others to do the same through videos and lessons.

A visit to his website reminds us not only of the beauty around us, but of the importance of poetry and skill in communicating that beauty.

My subject matter is the mood that arises from the ego-less contemplation of landscape, a mood of not-knowing that leaves some mystery in a painting, something unresolved that allows the viewer to explore the painting and make discoveries within it.
