Couple's art on exhibit in Westport

The loss of his camera led him to sift through older images.

“I came across some of pickerel, a plant that grows in many of the Adirondack ponds. I found them interesting and decided to do some work with them. No water lilies — I felt Monet has done everything that could be done with water lilies.”

Against the water, pickerel’s small lines and geometric silhouette reminded Whitecross of musical notes written on a score.

“I will have one painting in the show of this which may be a new series coming up.”


Though his subject matter remains the same, the way he views it has changed.

“The colors of the rock made me think of the Southwest, Middle East or Afghanistan. In the paper, I read continually about drones and drone warfare. I began to see these landscapes as pictures made by drones.”

He re-imagined his close focus of rock and shore as a drone view of an expansive landscape.

“The painting I used on my card, I called ‘Dronescape,’” Whitecross said.
