Artist's Statement: I am inspired by the colors, shapes, atmosphere, and seasonal changes I see in the local landscape and I find beauty in the subtle and simple aspects of our natural environments. Striving to remain truthful to my subject, I look to emphasize that which makes it unique and interesting. Throughout the painting process, I also appreciate the feeling of the paint coming off the brush and the rhythm and motion of working across the canvas. In a representational style, I strive to capture the mood of the scene and relay a sense of time and place. My palette, sense of color, and brushwork are among the attributes that distinguish my work.
