I have always been motivated by the interaction between colors and the physical feel and look of paint. It is a thrill and a challenge to set paint on the canvas and create a world through brushstroke, color areas, lines. My recent series of paintings focus on recollections of time spent in nature; they are not "plein-aire" nor from photographs, but from the images that stayed with me upon returning to the studio. I let the paint lead me to a location that serves as an abstracted personal landscape revisited. I hope the viewer finds a place to visit there as well.
