"My goal with each painting is to convey the beauty of the subject matter, whatever it may be. More specifically, the beauty of light hitting the subject, curving around its shape and caressing its very form, revealing curves and roundness or sharp edges and hardness, color changing at every turn. The light creates depth and space and the mysteries of the shadow areas; the composition unfolding before our eyes. The most mundane of objects can express beauty if the light dancing on and around it can be visualized and expressed. Surely, a humbling task! This takes a sensitivity and openness to what is before you, plus keen observation. I want the viewer to feel as if they can reach in and touch that leaf or apple; that there is another world beyond the surface of the canvas, or glimpsed beauty - if only for a moment. Hopefully, sometimes I am successful."
