Peace. Color. Joy. Patience. More Peace.
My background in commercial art has led in a long and circuitous route to finally giving in to my curiosity of color and light through oil paints. Painting takes me away from distractions and into a place of focus and balance; creating the colors, observant of the light source, recognizing details that would have otherwise been overlooked.
It is a continual trial-and error, work-in-progress. Each hopeful attempt creates a new teaching moment that I hope will help to convey the joy and satisfaction that painting brings to me.
