I have always had an interest in light and how it is affected by atmosphere. I think that is one of the main reasons I started painting landscapes. Unlike the traditional Impressionist painter, however, who also shares these same interests, my own involvement is less with the observational and scientific and more with the emotive and sensual. I would like the observer to “feel” what the space is all about. My interest in landscape is really in the space itself. I don’t deal with the things in the space except in a very primal way. The elements of earth, water, light and atmospheres are the ingredients in a natural drama that is continually playing itself out. The paintings shown here are part of a recent series that deals with energy changes within a space… storms and their aftermath.
