New Work: Land, Water & Sky
The ever-changing beauty of the Northwest fascinates me. Views ranging from the simple to the sweeping are just outside my door. I love how a passing slant of light can enliven an everyday scene, transforming it into something uplifting for a brief moment. It challenges me to attempt to capture it in the unruly material of oil paint.
The scenes I’m most often inspired to paint are landscape scenes in my rural neighborhood, water in all its vagaries, and grand vistas with remarkable skies. Although I’ve lived and painted here for more than 30 years, I never run out of incredible views to paint.
