"Some people are born to sing, play an instrument, or write. I was born to be a painter. I have always known what I wanted to do in life- create". ML Porter
My landscapes have been inspired from my travels and in the south where I call home. From the vast Louisiana fields and winding rivers to Arkansas woodlands with giant, towering trees and hills, and now to the Gulf Coast with its brilliant clouds of color in the sunsets and sunrises all are visions ready to be captured on the canvas. Each day brings a new possibility to discover and create.
“The beginning of a painting is always mysterious to me. A painting develops for me, unraveling the composition, as the colors, line, shapes, and texture seems to emerge on the canvas.”
