Artist’s Statement

For me to paint any subject matter it must be of personal interest, and it must be challenging.
The bulk of my work in the last few years has been landscapes, mostly desert and western scenes
as well as the Lake Tahoe and Sierra area.  

Though I began painting with acrylics, oil I is now my primary choice of media. I also have enjoyed experimenting with plein air pastel drawing.    

I like the concept of doing something I have never attempted; using the knowledge I have acquired through study, observation and practice while combining the basic elements of color, texture, form, light and shadow, to produce a final composition.
