I view my
painting experience as a "conversation with the light". It's a
constant give and take during the hour or so that I spend on location.
No matter how many times I return to the same spot, there is always
something new to discover.......and try to express on a mere two
dimensional surface. I'm always looking for ways to edit out
nonessential details, leaving the essence of this engagement in my
My desire is that, even without words, the viewer sees
that there is room in this dialog for them, too.
