REPRESENTATIONAL ART
 
“Capturing the light on a landscape or subject is the most important thing.”  As a plein air painter I am always searching for and trying to capture that light.  It is most definitely my inspiration.  The marsh views that we have right here in Charleston are good examples of how an ordinary marsh scene can turn into an exquisite painting with studying  how light affects the grasses, water, and flat plains.  I have discovered that there is color temperature in the light, depending on the time of day…warmer in the afternoon and cooler in the morning.  Painting is a never ending journey of study and practicing ones art.  It is a journey of joy!
 
Getting outside is good for the soul.  The sights and sounds that we experience, the feeling of tranquility can not be duplicated inside the studio.  I try to bring the outside in through my plain air studies and paintings by observing closely the color of the  light in a scene. I also try to depict the essence of the scene and not every detail is important in the painting…. leaving much to the be filled in by the viewer..  I want there to be an organic feel to the scenes that I paint.  Beautiful paintings that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us to connect to nature."
 
ABSTRACT PAINTING
 
"I love painting abstract works!   As a representational artist, I can tell you that abstracts are more difficult.  It is not enough to just put down shapes, forms and colors.  This is a completely different type of expressionism conveying interpretation instead of imitation. 
 
I use a central theme like the amethyst shape and then pull the energy from that form.  It does not read until it becomes a design showing movement and energy. Then, when the work comes together, the feelings and responses from the visual world unfold in front of you."
