Influenced by such artists as Vermeer,
Winslow Homer, and Andrew Wyeth, Terry Rosenfelder patiently fills his paintings with carefully observed light,
shadows, color, and detail. He hopes to bring to the viewer the same
delight he felt for his subjects. Although he uses a camera as a tool, his
photos are merely a starting point for a painting. Applying skills learned
through years of studying, teaching, and practicing art, he creates each
painting by adding (sometimes from memory) and subtracting details and altering
the perspective (if needed) to form an effective composition. He is
generous with details and textures and loves challenges such as the interactions
of light, movement, and water. The colors in his paintings remain true to
the original. Paintings of Maine, he believes, should look like Maine, not
Florida. The mood created by his paintings is often peaceful or
addition to landscapes, boats, and seascapes, Terry delights in painting people
- people interacting with people or with their environment. He admits to
being a realist and a perfectionist; his paintings often take months to complete.
He refuses to sign a painting until he is satisfied that nothing else in the
painting can be improved.
