Communicating— moving a vision from one mind to another—has been my life’s vocational quest. Art is the manifestation of philosophy. It is my work to share a vision, and with it my sense that the pursuit of beauty is the highest art.
I prefer to work in oils for larger pieces that incorporate both improvisational and compositional elements. For smaller pieces like this “Moonrise” piece i tende to work fast in acrylics and consider them more of a sketch.
I have long been inspired by O’keefe and her use of smooth colors and her use of pastoral scenes like her Lake George Barns. I am also intrigued by Mondrian and Kandinsky— applying improvisation and composition together— it is my artistic Sudoku— a puzzle to be solved.
