Painting is relaxing and is my way to get with God and His creation. I want to soak it in, understand it as well as I can, and then capture the special beauty of life as light and shadow splash across the scene. Loving being outside and interacting with others, I really enjoy plein air painting. Nature never fails to reward and challenge me as an artist with its constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere.
I see every painting as a journey of new opportunity and growth.
