I've been painting now for about 15 years, but I still learn something new every time I put brush to canvas. I like it that way.
It’s been a fascinating activity to pursue. At times frustrating, yet always fulfilling. It’s a constantly simmering, bubbling pot of principles and ideas that take on new flavors and depth the longer it’s on the stove.
My tastes have changed, my materials have changed, my motivations have changed, but light, color and form have not changed. They keep me coming back to the easel for one more go-round.
I strive to capture a sense of time and place in my work, and like the simple beauty of the effect of light on the subject. I believe that beauty is its own justification.
