My paintings are of the Western, mountains, farmlands and seashore sometimes with a house settled into the landscape. Recently, I have added animals and birds to my work. I abstract from nature by exaggerating shape, color and textures to convey my feelings about a place not just describe the place. My media is watercolor or acrylic sometimes adding collage. I paint in the studio and plein air usually starting with sketches and gathering photo references to capture the fleeting light or a particular detail. My hope is that a viewer can experience a place in a new way through my paintings.
