I want my paintings to be interpretations of nature that evoke an emotional response, invite the viewer's imagination, and share my sense of wonder. By creating art, I celebrate life and attempt to communicate my thoughts, feelings, memories, and imagination in a spirit of gratitude.
Choosing titles and writing artist's statements about each painting are very important to me. I paint things that have touched me deeply and hope that my creations will be personally meaningful to my viewers as well. Here are my thoughts as I completed the four images shown below:
Gratitude -- On this late autumn day, my heart is filled with gratitude for the beauty of nature and the love in my life.
Remembering November -- On the bleakest days of winter, remembering November days bathed in late autumn sunshine warms my heart.
Moment of Serenity -- A fleeting glimpse of nature's beauty fills me with awe.
