There is a certain satisfaction with combining the tension of space, balance, and
subject matter to create the most comforting relationship. I love the idea of
painting ordinary mundane subjects and transforming them into colorful imagery.
My work shifts from the attempt to present the world as it is and find the unusual
positions to bring out the character that the usual onlooker may not see, such as a
crooked street or leaning building. My idea is to stay focused on the fundamental
relationships as an unfinished study while enjoying the beauty of colors coming
against one another. This is an energizing and invigorating process as one moves to
refining the subject to a simple point of view. Color and light, for me, always take
on the role of transporting images to another era that provides nostalgia and the
memories of a simpler time. My urge is to always leave the viewer with a sense of
past tranquility that may give a moment’s pause within our busy days.
