Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist

                       ARTIST'S STATEMENT


Like most painters who are serious and passionate about their work, I paint what personally fascinates me. Most often that is a landscape, seascape, or cityscape. Many landscape painters say their goal is to evoke the same emotions in their viewers as they themselves felt when experiencing the scenes before them. I doubt that’s possible. Instead, my goal is to ignite the viewer’s own emotions in response to my painting. When that happens, the subject matter is simply what brought us together.

 

I consider myself a painterly realist, meaning that I try to be faithful to visual reality while making it clear through vigorous brushwork, lively color, and disregard of precise detail that what you’re looking at is a painting, not a photograph. In my wilder moments I can get downright impressionistic."
