Man’s impact on the landscape continues to be the basis of my work as I capture the feeling of the environment loosely based on what is currently happening in the world. In my new series I focus on the handling of the paint. I start with loose, expressive layers that slowly build up to more control and purpose. My layers are getting more complex as I play with color, contrast, shapes, and texture. My process is meditative and peaceful. It offers me a solution to the things in the world around me that I can not change. Painting allows me to participate in the world with a feeling of peace and control.
