Artist Statement
"Each day is a wonderful adventure I will cherish; while exploring and painting along my journey.   Impressionist Realism is a style I continue to strive to understand and study.  I feel the editing of a painting is probably one of the biggest challenges for an artist, to move things around in nature and delete the right things and still maintain that perfect balance."  " I am also drawn to dramatic skies and light in subjects".  "Perhaps, Auguste Renoir said it best The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself, carry you away.  It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion; it is the current which he puts forth which sweeps you along in his passion.”
