When painting I show the character of the subject while not being a slave to realism.  To me all images have a rhythm throughout that reverberates within each mark that I make. Color also vibrates …retreating or marching forward… and makes a statement all it’s own in defining a painting that I am not shy from utilizing.   Nature does as it wishes as man tries to control it in gardens and landscapes.  I try to show the push/pull of these two in my paintings.  While my philosophy of painting remains constant the subject matter of my paintings is quite diverse from plein air landscapes to still life to figurative and portraiture work.
