Back to Nature
My style is always evolving. Through the completion of many series of paintings I have kept techniques that work for me and thrown away those that don't. This has lead me to my current style which I call textural expressionism. My work is very gestural and loose. Lately, I use my hands (with gloves) and palette knives more than brushes. I find this makes the marks I make very unique and interesting. Since the pandemic I have been more focused on nature and have completed a small series of paintings focused on water. Here is one of my latest paintings called November Reservior. I feel like this painting embodies the best of my painting skill. The painting is loose and expressive but retains the representational image of the scene.

- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world. How the wind can create a ripple in a pond, a flock of birds descending on a field, or how sunlight can illuminate the side of a building are small miracles that happen all around us. Instead of seeking out subject matter to paint, I simply pay attention to the nuances in my surroundings. My goal is to turn what may be considered mundane or ordinary into the sublime.
