Historical Context:
Herbert Murrie learned early in his career the importance of painting every day. He revels in feeling the tools of his trade in his hands and to see how colors and paints react to one another. His paintings begin with an idea and then evolve as he pours and combines colors. As shapes and forms emerge he blends and manipulates the surface. And while he will edit and control certain elements of a composition, he prefers the organic – and at times inevitable – results occurring naturally in his creative process.
