It is my goal in painting to create a beautiful three dimensional image with light and shadow as its premise. Then the thoughtful use of pigments or place that can be exquisitely rendered on canvas. In the Spirit of Trompe L' Oeil tradition (French for "deceive the eye") I honor the spirit of things by painting nature with a luminous depth so creatures can virtually be picked up off the canvas and be held in the hand. To achieve this depth I repaint the surface over and over until it becomes luminous and three dimensional.
"Mount's paintings invoke breathtaking images, utilizing the natural beauty of nature, while eulogizing the dignity and character of its inhabitants, bringing across the awe-inspiring vista and classical response to landscape." - Nathan Oliveria
