Landscape paintings can speak to the human heart and connect us to the earth. They stir the imagination, both spiritually and emotionally. I paint landscapes to be alive in nature's majestic beauty, if I am fortunate enough to get the nuances. The viewer will see and feel the pleasure that caused that color, to make that mark in that place at the right time in the finished work. I strive to capture with realistic artistry the lucid, lively color, that fleeting moment of sunshine and shadow, the sounds of spring, the autumn breeze, the first snows chilling glow.
