Artist's Statement

Painting is my way to be 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 fill the scene. I prefer to paint outdoors directly on site. I feel that it is the best way to capture the immediacy of the moment. It allows me to immerse myself in the subject. Nature never fails to reward and challenge me as an artist with its constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere.

While I enjoy painting in several mediums, my focus right now is oil painting with a palette knife and the energy and emotion that it presents. I see every painting as a journey of new opportunity and growth.
