I walk in Nature, observing and sketching compositions with ink and watercolor crayon. I note such things as weather, time of day, and color nuances. These later inform larger abstract oil or acrylic paintings in the studio. Each unique painting is the product of being in a particular location, and the memories of that experience. Cubistic lines and edges shift throughout each painting, creating a sense of ambiguous space. Colors and textures then weave an image that elucidates the sublime both in landscape and in ourselves.
