Painting is a joy that continues to enrich my life. I have always loved landscape painting and painting “en plein aire” is my favorite way to spend the day. I usually paint with a traditional landscape pallete in oil, but occasionally I use soft pastel, acrylic, watercolor or make my own egg tempera paint.

I find great beauty in everyday life that can easily go unseen. After traveling many interesting places, I still find the flowering plants on my deck, the chairs on my back porch and what I see while walking my dog are all imbued with a special grace that makes me want to paint. The transient play of light on the grass and the interactions of nature’s colors are an unending source of inspiration.

Basically, I paint because I can not “not paint.” I have also found that even while working at my very best, it is the inevitable mistake, or serendipity, that brings a painting alive. I realize the truth of the words of the poet Leonard Cohen, “Cracks are what let the light in.”
