"The inspiration for Inlet Sun happened spontaneously, as often happens in my paintings," explains painter Janis Sanders. "I was enjoying a delicious lobster roll at Perkin's Cove, Ogunquit, Maine on a hot Sunday afternoon in July. As I seated myself on the coastal rocks, I glanced across the calm water. The late daylight cast gently across the surface of this home. Beach roses danced in the gentle breeze and the entire scene was filled with serenity. I made note of this scene proceeded with great delight to lend my interpretation of this beautiful place in as soon as I returned to my studio."
Janis H. Sanders is an award winning American Realism artist who paints expressively and vigorously using a palette knife only, often en plein air, blending minimally to keep the freshness of the impression of that one moment. Drawing on the spirit of Cape Cod, where he lives and works, Sanders records the aroma of salt air, sunshine bouncing on the water of the North Shore, and the silence of the marsh. Sunlight spills joyfully onto his images of beach cottages and rugged cliffs, silhouetted against his signature brilliant blue skies. His work hangs in prestigious collections in the United States and overseas.
