Almost all my work has its roots in nature. The images are about organizing what I perceive and feel. They are not about creating a totally literal landscape.
The viewer is invited into the atmosphere of a place where they experience the feeling of this space. Atmosphere is often expressed through the fluid reflections of light on water and land and the different elements that obscure these reflections.
Many of my paintings depict a moment in time apart from the rapid change in light and contrast. This sense of immediacy allows the viewer to be a part of nature rather than apart from it.
All of my works in oil are created from a build up of many layers of transparent and opaque colors.
