In my paintings I try to combine the realities of different places traveled with the color and mood experienced. From mountains to valleys, to woods, to farms, to ocean, to the people along the way, with the infinite color changes experienced as day progresses into night and with the textures of the ever changing land. Whether from nature or the reconstruction of a scene through notes and memory, I like to create a range of different subjects and approaches in my paintings that are both varied yet speak to each other. I endeavor to portray a sense of drama and mood, a frozen moment of enduring love and abiding respect for land, sea and nature. Music by Douglas Ross on the Dulcimer.
