The pictures arise from direct observation of the locations that he records via numerous sketches, drawings and colors studies.

Referring to them in his studio, Vadnais turns the references into pictures through a lengthy process of reflection and distillation.

He draws heavily on traditional methods of painting while employing modern materials such as acrylic paint and durable aluminum composite panels.

The finished pictures have a complex balance of observed facts, memory and invention. Through these modest structures with their subtle play of light and texture, he finds magic in the mundane.
