Landscapes

My work begins in front of nature. I am drawn by the beauty of color, light pattern, space and form. Because there are so many intellectual stimulate, my work seeks to balance these ideas with a formal solution. I have chosen oil technique and the brushwork becomes the connecting force between visual excitement and the resolved order of the paint surface and the subject.

Pictorial detail yields to ideas of form and space, and the visual stimulation of the media surface. The pictorial result conveys the beauty of the subject and the excitement interacting with the physicality of the paint surface. The viewer receives the pleasure of the unity of subject and media.
