Most of my paintings originate from the landscape of the North Quabbin region of Central Massachusetts, with occasional jaunts to the coast. I use oil (sometimes with wax or sand), acrylic (with various acrylic mediums), and, most recently, acrylic with collage (mostly painted, but some commercially printed, papers), concentrating on landscape and landscape-based abstraction.
I am interested in expressing an emotional response to landscape and nature, which is sometimes more descriptive and sometimes more abstract—usually expressed through naturalistic color and complex surface texture.
I try to treat each new painting as a new adventure,
to share a unique, little-bitty slice of momentary truth in nature.
I suppose this is how I express my hope that we can save, for a little while longer, these landscapes and our astounding planet.
