My paintings represent a visual journal of my life in Maine, reflecting my love of Nature and my participation in it. The subjects I choose to paint are usually found in the inland and coastal landscapes near where I live. A recurring theme in my work is the way in which light falls upon objects and water, creating different patterns and reflections within the context of the composition. I prefer late afternoon light for its golden hues and long shadows or early morning as the sun just begins to reach the earth in its early ascent. My intent is to give the viewer a sense of “place”- of being there with me; participating in the experience of Nature.
