Artist's Statement

Like Cezanne, my paintings are based on reality and connected to the earth. The "earth" in these paintings is no more than fifty feet from the easel on which they are made. It is my garden in which I have dug, planted, and discovered my motifs. Though common in idea, I try for the uncommon... fully aware of the historical continuum of painting itself. I feel both humbled and empowered by endless possibility of what could come next.

Robert James Foose, April 2006
