Sometimes paintings know what they want to be. These paintings seem to paint themselves and they are always the best paintings in my body of work. This painting called "Stormy Inlet" fits this narrative. Most years I travel to the New England shore. These memories exist in my subconscious and sometimes appear in my paintings. This painting derives from my memories of the coast of New England and climate of our planet. It depicts cleansing power of water and the dangers of global warming.

- 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.
