Nature provides us with a place to catch our breath. I want my paintings to provide that respite.
The art is inspired by specific sites - be it a large panoramic vista or a closer examination of natural patterns. Rather than a realistic depiction of a place, they are remembrances that combine observation and imagination. So that focus is not diverted and to achieve timelessness, they are void of any human elements.
Working in many translucent layers of muted colors helps me to achieve a quiet quality. The soft-focus quality of the work is used to enhance the delicate haziness and add to the sense of serene, untouched nature. I strive to capture the mood rather than the details by focusing on any atmospheric conditions or elements that deflect or mask the light, blur the details, and leave you wondering what's beyond.
