Its hard to describe your own work. Here it is, look at it
what do you think?
I paint the things Im attracted to, on location if
possible; painting on location brings an immediacy to my work
not often found in the studio. Some of my work is very detailed;
if I am attracted to the intricacy of the subject I will often
make a very thoughtful, intricate painting
I love to
draw, and so a very detailed drawing is like solving a puzzle
for me. Some of my paintings are concerned with impressions,
the way things make me feel, such as the way the colors of
the sunset reflect in a marsh
this is looser, more about
color and less about detail. I like to paint the light instead
of painting the figure; this allows me to show the model without
a lot of detail, and also to weave the figure into the background.
I try to always keep rhythm and a flowing line in my work.
