Artistic trends extend in many directions, and I wrestle with the traditional themes and process of my work in a world that demands new and “cutting edge” fabrications at every turn.
This much I know is true: I love what I do, and I paint because I am spiritually, psychologically and physically affected by the observation and relationships of light and color, their natural organic place in my vision.
I may pick up a #10 Holbein painting knife, or a 1 1/2 inch chisel brush to move the paint around, each suggesting a different emotion (unbeknownst to me), another distinct take on a familiar place, a classic subject.
Some paintings flow together with an ease and grace, while others are created with an earnest struggle and great angst. Some very loose, others tight and detailed.
All an expression of appreciation of the life in a day, as well as the sadness I feel at the loss of a friend or loved one.
Thank you for coming to view my work.
