Artist of the Month
November Artist of the Month
“My paintings are an expression of my love for the natural world.
I attempt to capture the spirit of time, place, atmosphere and mood with colors that are bold and vibrant. My touch is expressive.
Paint, color, texture and form are elements that combine to elicit a response from the viewer. The spirit of time and place are what I attempt to capture. This response is as important as the persons and places depicted.
I hope my art asks viewers to take a second look at the beauty that is all around us, and to utilize our memory of those times, incidents, and places to enhance the art.”
