Mountain Landscape

By painting landscape I connect specific places to concepts of time and space.  Season, light, and tide are the markers that usually place my work in time, and walking, hiking, or kayaking are the means used for exploring favorite places. 

Alternating between specific and suggested forms creates tension as my eye moves through the painting as it has moved through the space of the land. I search for distinctive forms with marks of paint so that they solidify when seen from a distance, but disintegrate into active pieces of color as the painting is approached.
