Exterior Mural Project
Painting landscapes is something that I enjoy doing, something that I have
taken with me through the journey of my life for more than forty years. What
is it that attracts me to the landscape? I suppose it's a place of being for us
all, our connection to the land, giving us a sense of place on this planet.

The elements that attract me to a scene have to do with composition, color,
contrasts of light and dark. When I paint a tree in a field the tree becomes
secondary to describing the space around it. What I like best about being in the
landscape is, it's a way to capture the moment - a way to stop time and study it.
Through that observation an imprinted memory of the scene remains for me.
