As a landscape painter I am part of a continuum that transcends style, trends and art politics. There always have been, and will continue to be, artists who paint what they see and experience in their surroundings. For me, It is a simple yet imposing mission – to paint what I admire and often puzzle over in the world that I encounter daily. I paint what I like and also what I do not like. I "get it right" not by accurately taking an inventory of windows or bricks, but by exposing subtle emotions as they are stirred, possibly by a long shadow as it hops a curb and ascends a red orange wall. As such, I am not a painter of Reading or Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, but of epiphanies experienced in these places at particular moments in time.
