No matter what his subject, landscape or still life, or whether he is painting with oil or watercolors, Pete Jordan is a master of the form. Jordan’s paintings reveal the quiet drama of nature and its change of seasons, while also conjuring up a certain nostalgia for time and place. A country lane in the evening light, an old barn near a coastline, a stretch of farmland in sunlight, as well as his fascination with the objects of daily living, are all revealed exquisitely with the skill, confidence and originality of this self-taught painter.

As a lifelong hiker, Jordan’s love and respect for the natural world is evident in his landscapes. Viewers often comment on his use of light, but it’s the subject that drives this artist. Jordan is drawn to the often unnoticed cycle of days ﹣ the morning light on a road, shadows on a field, snow alongside a path next to a fence. The viewer is transported to a time and place where light and weather and a certain nostalgic feeling are evident. Jordan’s work is expertly subtle. It is evokes a sense of the familiar, while expressing a keen appreciation for the natural world.
