I paint the things and places I love, always striving to capture fleeting moments of beauty.  My paintings are a conversation between me and my subject.  If you are attracted to one of my paintings, there is a shared connection and you are able to participate in that conversation.  It's like a remnant of familiarity and understanding that we share.  This is pure magic and is really exciting to me!
