"I don't find the landscape, it finds me. If I go out with a preconceived idea of what I want to paint, I can drive around for hours and never find it. But if I go out with a clear head, full of creative energy and no preconceptions usually a scene will present itself within a few minutes. Then I am free to open myself to whatever is in front of me and tackle the painting with vigor and passion. This is when I do my best work, the work that excites me and typically transforms itself into a larger studio version where I share what I found, put down in paint and throw a frame around it to share with the world. If I am not painting, I am thinking about painting. If I am painting, I'm thinking about nothing else."
