My travels as a billboard pictorial artist allowed me to observe the ever changing landscape. The way the colors of a landscape would vary from sunrise to sunset. Fleeting clouds would cast the land in cool shadow. Clouds would sometimes group together and settle in a valley or skim a mountaintop. All of these different atmospheres create direct emotional powers of their own.
I simply rely on memory, imagination and intuitive senses as reference to capture an impression of a landscape. The emotions that a landscape creates is my inspiration for what and how I paint.
The process begins with several colorful gestured brush stokes from my limited palette of five colors. Working quickly I add random splashes of color onto the surface of the painting allowing the paints to flow and mix together. At this point the piece appears uncontrolled, almost abstract. I then rely on my imagination and intuition to determine the direction the painting will take. This is when I decide what needs to be removed, added, scraped, blended or softened to guide the piece to completion.
My painting style gives my artwork a suggestive quality. I invite the viewer to use their imagination. A long stroke of blue violet in a background may be perceived as a line of trees. A soft blend of color might suggest a meadow or a vista of water. I strive to portray the essence of unspoiled land and to create a scene as intimate and personal to the viewer as possible.
I am proud to announce that I am now being represented in the Houston Metro area by The SEAD Gallery, Bryan TX. To see what is currently showing at The SEAD Gallery go to seadgallery.com
