Transparency, luminosity and the overall beauty of light striking and often moving through objects inspires me to try to capture the feeling of experiencing beauty for the first time. That first “Wow” moment is what I strive to share in my paintings. I begin many of my paintings “en plein air” - which not only is a challenge but a motivating experience. Painting in the “moment” provides me with an overwhelming connection with the beauty of God’s creation.
