Bolton recently explained his work in this exhibition, "Watershed," "Having the attention span of a puppy, I find it best to work within self-imposed parameters." "Traditionally, I have set- tled on an idea and then re- quired myself to create a minimum of 12 variations, exploring lateral avenues to assure myself that I have, indeed, beaten the idea to death. "Beyond that, I also like to contain my desires with a series of other limitations and, since I have always considered myself a land- scape artist, this invariably includes geography. I prefer to work close in because a landscape doesn't need to in- clude a mountain and a cloud to convey a sense of place. "For this gaggle of works I chose the Spanish Creek drainage -- one of my life's own backyards. Yes, I see the irony of writing this from Santa Cruz, but who am I to pick a fight with Pliny the El- der when he says home is where the heart is? The dude wouldn't be a fair fight. "So this is a hodge-podge of images, fleeting memories and the finer offerings of mother earth, bounded, more or less, by upper Meadow Valley and American Valley from Silver Creek down the watercourses to around Oak- land Camp. "As a further confine, every piece in this show con- tains a little physical some- thing from that aspect of the cartographer's notes, and several of the pieces were created using only materials that were gathered along that limited waterway. "I collected and refined lo- cal clays to make those ob- jects, and tethered them to- gether using everything from stovepipe rust and cattail cordage to adhesives made from pine pitch and ashes or the odd boiled bits. Rocks, twigs, pine needles ... the usual suspects ... "As I said, I am a landscape painter."
