Art has the power to enrich, to feel beauty. Nature has the power to soothe, to heal; to bring joy to the soul. The peace I feel In nature is what I'm attempting to visualize on the canvas.
I'm not interested in capturing exactly what I see, precisely as the scene is before me,
But I strive to portray the feeling; the thing about that place that touches my soul. We are bombarded daily by the negative.
I hope that my art may cause the viewer to pause and reflect for a moment on the beauty of life. In this chaotic world, to feel the quiet stillness of nature brings me peace. As I stand in such places, it becomes my desire to share.
And so, the reason for my art.
