My work is not intended to be a faithful reproduction of the landscape before me.  Instead I paint by feel.  The paintings that evoke the most emotion are those completed on location where I am able to allow my surroundings and the weather to dictate how I proceed.  I try not to worry about the ending, rather I let the painting unfold and track its own course across my paper.  

 

For me painting allows that perfect quiet, where I am peaceful and at peace with myself, and my surroundings.  It's an escape from the everyday, a chance to experience the earth more fully, a chance to breathe and know that all is well.

 

To put it simply, I paint because it makes me happy. My hope is that the viewer can find a similar joy and peace in my work.
