Painting landscapes recreates the sense of freedom, quiet and exhilaration that I feel outdoors. I’m drawn to the light and colors of fleeting moments which I try to portray in my representational paintings. Influenced by the impressionists, sometimes I push or change my colors to convey my feelings about a scene.
My use of the brush and the palette knife, which are as unique to me as handwriting, will vary with each painting depending on my mood or the landscape. There is a spontaneity yet controlled look to my paintings. My hope is that you will wander through my work feeling the excitement and serenity that I feel.
My work has been shown and published in national & international shows and publications. I also teach oil painting workshops.
