James Maki – Artist’s Statement
For over forty years, teaching art was my profession. I always drew, painted, sketched, and did ceramics and jewelry along with my students.
Watercolors have interested me most. It’s a medium that allows for freedom of expression yet requires planning and exactness. The colors can be vibrant and exciting to moody and pensive. I feel that it is an ideal method to capture the scenes of nature and rustic buildings that I most enjoy painting.
The delicate quality of pen and ink, have helped me see and capture details of objects in nature and in buildings. Thin branches, grasses and fluttering birch leaves can be drawn clearly and precisely.
As Paul Cezanne said, “If I were called upon to define briefly the word ‘Art,’ I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.”
This has been my goal for my artwork
