Hicks Island, Lazy Point by Terry Elkins


“Hicks Island, Lazy Point” by Terry Elkins

Oil on panel, 16″ x 25″, framed: 22″ x 30″

From the artist, on moving to the East End thirty years ago: “I discovered the area where I had settled was a light filled landscape surrounded by ocean and bays. I began to work outside, in the tradition of Plein Air. My work began to reflect the light, landscape, the coastline, architecture and other images found in the littoral zone. Today I keep going back to the places where I’ve painted before, working there again, developing ideas and techniques that I was unable to do five or ten years ago.”
