About the Artist
I want to see the world around me as beautiful and share that. All of the landscapes I paint are abstractions meant to feel familiar but none are of real places; they are composed of places that the viewer might innately identify like a dream and feel calm and unrushed. Time is a theme in most of my work, the layering and drying require that the composition comes together allowing me to invent as I go along. I put the circles/planets/orbs/bubbles in the sky to give the viewer a sense of moving slowly into the scene. I use primarily oil paint, some dry pigment, and varnish medium on gallery canvas. Most of the thin glaze layers are applied very wet on dry work; the dry pigment is scattered over wet. The edges are leafed to frame the composition. Lives and works in Irondale, AL.
