Artist's Statement: Painting has almost nothing to do with paints. At its core it is a mental and spiritual exercise. It is about being present in a place that has somehow overtaken your will through an initial recognition of some beauty or composition. You want to spend time describing some element of light or mood, but progressively you reveal the secrets that time has hidden away here. Whether architecture, or a coastline, or field and forest ravaged by the seasons, paints are really just tools and techniques to relay what this place told you about itself.
