The past 7 years of creating art utilizing the palette knife and oil paints, has not only heightened my enjoyment of painting but it has also allowed me a level of purpose and passion I had previously never experienced.
The inspiration I find for my compositions are diverse and often quite simple. Driving the highways, byways and backroads can put me face to face with a barn constructed by hand in a time gone by, it might give me a glimpse of an abandoned vehicle or piece of equipment that has long since served its purpose, a lush green rolling field where livestock graze or a meadow of wildflowers creating an amazing palette of color on a sun-drenched morning.
When the inspiration “strikes”, my challenge becomes capturing the beauty of the subject and transposing it to my canvas, utilizing texture, movement and an endless array of hues hopefully enabling the viewer to feel and experience what drew me in originally.
If my work can evoke emotion, memories, a tear or a smile, then I am forever grateful that our paths have crossed.
