"My recent work focuses on the natural sunlit world of the northeast landscape. Paintings range from extreme close ups of pond surfaces, forests and flowers to more encompassing views. Created in acrylic on canvas, I explore the visual interaction that occurs between streams, ponds and bodies of water with their surrounding landscape environments. Inspired by the interplay and rich diversity of various elements within these natural places, especially on water surfaces, my paintings capture close up views of intimate forest settings. Sometimes tiny worlds of subtle harmonies and rhythms are revealed, where the recognizable becomes abstract. Abstraction discovered in the microcosmic is the primary motivation for my flower paintings. They represent an extension of my landscape work and enable me to experiment more freely with composition. I hope my paintings communicate something of the peace and contemplativeness that I experience when visiting these natural places."
