I am seduced by the landscape and the process of painting. My paintings are not representational, but a bit abstracted without losing a visual reference to my subject. They are more a presentation of the rhythm and movement of nature. I develop my process to form a relationship involving the varied and rich colors of land and sky, the stature and character of trees, how light reflects off water and how the breeze moves across the marsh, to create the illusion of a place in time.
