My paintings are real scenes of my world. I paint landscape as a way to preserve or recall how a transitory slant of light can transform an everyday view into something special. I try to capture how light enlivened these scenes and made them transcendent for a brief moment. I see myself as a record keeper of a specific place and a specific time—the views I capture change immediately and will never be repeated. Capturing a momentary scene in paint saves that moment for me. As a viewer, I become part of the painting when I recall my initial visceral reaction to the scene. My reward for my efforts is watching how overlapping patterns of texture and color come together to capture the whole.
