When a landscape or other aspect of Nature grabs my inner being it is an unforgettable experience. I celebrate the beauty of Nature's and humanity's existence in balance. Where Nature's and humanity's powerful and destructive forces are out of balance I am filled with anger and great sadness. I express these sentiments in my paintings, inviting the viewer to see Nature and human involvement in diverse images.
Colors. skies, light and darkness define movement in shapes in the midst of vast spaces become organisms of sentiment and mood. Paths of light and dark guide the viewer's perception and interior connections with the paintings. The images whisper a reminder to the viewer, "we are stewards, not the masters of planet Earth."
