Kirk developed an interest in painting as a young man when he first saw the work of Edward Hopper and Winslow Homer. The images they painted depicted life in our country during their times and led him to make paintings of people, places and moments that he experiences today.
“The old buildings in Tuscan hill towns have wonderful features, colors and textures that are magnified in the late day sun. I enjoyed exploring the subtle color and value changes in the shadows, as well as the sun lit areas of this building,” says Kirk.
“After spending two weeks in Italy, I returned to my studio in Maryland with a bunch of plein air studies, sketches and reference photos. “Window Shadows” is one of a group of paintings fleshed out from those references.”
Kirk has shown his work in dozens of solo and two-artist shows (with his wife, Lynne Lockhart). His home and studio are located close to the water on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
