Awe and wonder of the physical world are the emotions I feel when I observe the natural world and when I attempt to paint it. It is said that in the practice of drawing and painting one gains a deeper understanding of the object before them. Its unique line, color and form are identified and revealed as distinct from all else and yet an essential part of the whole. What I could so easily look past becomes something wonderfully complex in its simplicity. Add to that how light is absorbed, reflected and illuminated within and around the structure. That is what I hope to render and share with others.
