Love and respect for nature inspires my art. Images are derived from sketches and observations of nature, but are not intended to be a literal representation of a specific time or place. Rather, the intent is to represent a universal embodiment of the spirit of nature. The original sketches and observations are altered and refined in the studio. Composition, form, color, light and brushwork are the focus. The technique of multiple layers of transparent washes implies a naturalistic landscape rather than a stylized image.
Hopefully “Dusk” evokes a response similar to my love and respect for nature.
