I work in color, superimposing it in strata, scraping, erasing, layering successive applications of paint to create spaces of infinite complexity.  Rearranging the real, suspending time in the midst of continuing action, my work of painting is stopping time for a brief moment and capturing with brush, paint and canvas. 


I observe the structure, and the space between. This is the direction I am taking for this experiment in painting landscapes. 

After 20 years of painting I am just beginning to understand what painting is all about!


I love watching the puffy clouds float by in the blue sky, the dark blue lakes, the rocky rivers, the bright wooded hills, the large trees, all inspiring within my sunny studio.
