I paint both landscapes and still lifes in an attempt to document our beautiful, fragile planet and our rare quiet moments. A primary goal of my landscape painting is to bring to the viewer’s awareness the magnificent surroundings we all share and must protect. I continue to work passionately to preserve our remaining natural areas and the wonderful creatures that live there. Currently I am working on several series, one of which features landscapes and cityscapes of North Carolina. These works include marshes, lakes, streams, vineyards, old barns, wet city streets, and anything else that really captures my attention. I do both plein air paintings of the landscapes and larger studio paintings in which I work to recapitulate the sensory qualities I experience when painting on site.
