Whether living on the East or West coast I have always been drawn to the power and beauty of nature, especially where land and water meet. The beautiful nuances and varieties in natural light, textures, colors and shapes in the outdoor world fascinate and energize me. The exciting and predictable unpredictability of what can happen when pigment and papers meet on the canvas continues to hold my attention and to delight me. I attempt to celebrate what nature has presented as I work toward suggesting a particular scene, or time, or mood. At some point in this fluid, changing, evolving process I limit the information. No need to over refine or define. When I am successful with a painting I can rely on the viewer's own imagination, memories and personal interpretation to give the painting new meaning, interest and life.
