From parched golden hills of summer to the misty gray of the coast, Seitz paints on location to capture inconstant vistas. Making use of dynamic atmospheric conditions that shift the shades of lighting and color, scenes of the rocky coastline showcase liquid shadows and cloud formations.”

Seitz explores the county’s countryside to capture pastoral scenes not seen from the roadside. Deep and luminous hues are used to portray seemingly undiscovered territory. The only hint of civilization is the occasional barn, fence, or other lone structure paying tribute to the people of the land.”
