I am in awe of the beauty that surrounds us in this world and hope that I can communicate a little of that in the paintings that I do. I never have trouble finding something to paint because a painting is possible with whatever I am looking at, the shadows, the light, the colors all combine to give an impression of the whole. Being in the field or, plein air, as artists say is my favorite way to paint and I try to spend fifty percent of my time painting there.
