Artist Statement

When asked to describe my work, I would answer :"it is eclectic quasi-realism". I often paint from life for still life, rural and urban landscapes. Occasionally, I flood paper or canvas with color and let the results suggest the subject. I have sweved into abstraction after viewing space telescope pictures. Sometimes my work is tongue-in-cheek but it can be thought provoking. I work in all media but favor the depth of color achieved only with oil paint. I challenge myself to capture the play of light and convey the variety of beauty in my world. It is a continuation of a lifetime of work and the result of many wonderful instructors and mentors I have met along the journey.
