“Experimenting in various mediums over the years has lead me to working almost exclusively in oils today. I am a landscape painter but the land, per se, is not the focus of my art. My inspiration derives instead from an area just above the land; that beautiful, mysterious line where the earth meets the sky, where the two seem to melt together into a gauzy mist. It is this evocative, moody area that drives the desire to reach for my brushes. My substrates can vary from linen, wood, Mylar or even copper but I have found the blending qualities of oil paint to be the most conducive in capturing the ethereal moods I observe in nature.”
