Artist Statement: The challenge of painting outdoors is addictive. It involves intense concentration. When I successfully focus on the crucial elements of a composition, I arrive at a serene perception of being part of a brief episode in time. While recording my impressions, sunlight moves, the temperature drops, wind sculpts the sky in a spectrum of colors. Often, I am a solo witness to the spectacular drama of late afternoon. I enjoy painting with oils on location and working in my studio when the seasons transform the landscape. New projects are underway.
