“It demands a step backward, a slight tilt of the head, and begs for the smallest squint to see more clearly: as if looking into something luminous,” shares Mooney. “You must instinctively pull back to be pulled back in. Brush strokes of gold and grey and a faint remnant of sky blue cover the canvas, but it’s the orange. Burnt and bright. Deep and daring.”

Hoyt can fly by the seat of his pants like a few others. Usually, he works from a variety of images he takes with his camera as he travels. Yet he still embraces the moment and absorbs all he can from each experience that may wander across his path.
“Offering the marsh, ocean, woods, and rocks, Timber Point is one of my favorite places for painting,” shares Gerding. “It also holds an emotional attachment for me…. vacationing in Maine as a child, and it was a ‘rite of passage’ to be old enough to go to the island during low tide. Somehow being out on that island makes you feel like you’re standing on the edge of the land.”

As a painter, I use oil paint almost exclusively. I loved it at age three when I got into my father’s paints and saw the hardwood floor and my body as perfect vehicles for expression. If I close my eyes, I still hear my mother’s scream. That introduction has stayed with me. Today I love pushing and pulling oil paint around my canvas. Expressive, abstract explorations of the landscape excite me, particularly that of New England and Maine’s coast.
My process begins with “wood hunting”: I seek the unusual and the imperfect. Often rejected by large-scale wood processors, these characteristics show how art can be produced within an organic, natural environment. I view myself as a custodian of this natural art. I focus on creating designs that bring this natural art into people’s homes.
