The Road that No One Wanted, 2010, oil on canvas, 58 x 72

Graphic ElementThe act of mixing a palette has always been a natural activity. The interactions of the colors are a vibrant variation of my perception of the natural landscape. When I go out into the landscape for the first time, I look for interpretive skies and vast landscapes. I find myself most interested in the sculptural quality found within the landscape.

Each brushstroke has a distinct function, which is represented by my quick reaction to the subject matter. Studies are an important part of the process of painting for me. The preparatory studies not only allow me to examine the composition but the reaction I obtain from the elements of the landscape. I contemplate with the same quickness when working on the final painting as I do when I paint a study. My eagerness to create is reflected through vivacious mark making. The quick reaction to the landscape allows for a swift, bold, refined solution.
