My work is an emotional response to nature or to the environment or to memory. The intention is for each painting to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. When I start a canvas, I begin with a pencil drawing and then apply many thin layers of oil paint to linen in order to reveal a luminescence and transparency. The process itself is meditative even if it is somewhat laborious, but the resulting effect adds depth and power to the color, intensifying the impact.
