​I strive to represent what I see, especially in terms of the overall “note” – a visual notion encompassing the large value and color relationships of a subject, combined with nuanced drawing with the loaded brush. Composition is critically important, and the difficulty of composing in front of nature is the major reason that less than half of paintings done on site are fit to show. I take my entire artistic inspiration from eras prior to the advent of modernism. I hope that the work inspires a sense of recognition and of beauty in the viewer. These are representations of a reality that is passing away - “We see now through a glass as in a dark manner” – but which, to my mind, obviously indicate a transcendent reality - “Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known.” (1 Corinthians: 13:12. )
