Why A Figurative Painter Paints A Landscape

Several years ago, I was at the Lucien Freud exhibit at MOCA of his vey large figurative oil paintings of large, ruddy people, when I was relieved to find a room full of landscape paintings. I found solace in the fact that I was not the only artist with duel obsessions, torn between the figure and the landscape. The landscape so much more malleable, the figure so impactful and narrative. For now, I offer you a new original oil landscape of a golf course in Wailea. Some may call it romantic or nolstagic when compared to my figurative paintings, they may find this particular golf landscape too Classicist, but I just can't resist the urge to paint them, and my collectors of this genre of my work, love having them. How can that be bad?
