Big Bend National Park.

Artist Statement

My paintings are an impressionist view of the landscape and flora around Texas. I focus on color, light, and shadows, observing the colors of the sky and the way it constantly changes, especially around sunrise and sunset. I am fascinated with the Northern sky at sunset and the southern sky at sunrise. And I enjoy the light the sun will create on the ground when it is low on the horizon.
I love painting water – the reflections, as well as shadows and light both on top and underneath the surface. I love to paint moving water, and how it flows over rocks. The many creeks and rivers in Texas allow me to observe and paint water flowing slowly in shallow creeks or cascading quickly over limestone shelves.
I have been greatly influenced by my mentors, David Caton and the late Bill Zaner, both accomplished painters in Texas, as well as by artists such as Frederick Church, Mark Johnson Heade, Porfirio Salinas, and Julian Onderdonk (the latter 2 painted the Texas Hill Country).
