Painting on site can result in a freshness and vitality achieved in no other way. I enjoy hiking out on the land, surrounded by sounds of birds, aromas of grass and trees, immersed in the landscape.
I paint to explore the mysteries and beauties of the natural world, to evoke deeper truths beyond the superficial.
I like to explore secluded corners of nature, where one may find unexpected compositions or surprising plays of light.
I believe the arc of an artwork's creation is completed when a viewer brings to the piece his or her own memories, experiences and interpretations, and thus becomes, in a sense, a participant.
If you are thinking about acquiring a piece of art, your most important consideration should be: do you like it?
