I paint with love, love for both the subject of my paintings
and for the process of painting itself.
I try to rely on my inner spirit for the creativity and guidance in the
execution of my paintings. Whether I paint “plein air” or in my studio, I like
to think that my inner spirit of creativity is really the Holy Spirit at
work. To begin a painting I await my
inner spirit to nudge me into the painting mode. That love will express itself
in a desire to interpret the subject matter and method to execute the
painting. This is my main purpose of
painting: to communicate my inner spirit to yours with a passion. I have
several aims: To produce strong and colorful paintings with an economy of
strokes, to paint quickly and energetically and focusing on the “idea” of the
painting. Some would call my work impressionist and representational with the
use of bright colors with pure hues. Mixing
of colors occurs mostly on the paper.
I feel honored to have my paintings in private
collections in many locations in the US
plus Russia, England, Belize, Belarus,
Austria, and Indonesia.
