Many of you know that I am a fan of Pinterest and on occasion I publish links to artists whose work I find interesting. Today is one of those days and I want to introduce you to Mark Goodwin, an artist living and working in Vermont.

Mark's work spans painting, works on paper and sculpture. His work has a spontaneous quality and is a bit raw and primal. The scale of the pieces are modest and his color palette is mostly neutral. The work spoke to me about honesty, trust and sublimity. The work has a quiet confidence and modesty which I find very appealing. It's the idea of showing your audience something rather than telling them something.

After viewing the work on his website I read his statement and found a kindred spirit.
