Painting for me is a way to describe the beauty of nature. When you look at a painting and you can feel the sun on your skin, smell the pines and hear the birds singing; then you know you are looking at a great painting. I have been fortunate to realize my craft through many talented and giving individuals, schools and associations. My primary influences are Sargent, Degas, Hopper, Andrew Wyeth, Van Gogh and many others.
