ARTIST STATEMENT The landscape of our kitchen table and beyond is the setting for this series of paintings. The elements of my work are south windows, flowers, mail, fruit, screw drivers and paint brushes - cats and dogs. This table is a central crossroads in our lives. The ever changing combination of light, color, texture and pattern, across this landscape, is the subject of my work. The spontaneity of the painting reflects the quick life of the scene, as it expresses the cheer I feel at this visual/emotional mix of sunlight, bold colors and patterns, an animal I love. These scenes, caught in passing, give me a momentary burst of pleasure. My goal is to have my paintings give the viewer an equal burst of cheer.
