" We are touched by what we touch, shaped by what we shape, enhanced by what we enhance" Thomas Berry 
Good Day Good Night Old Friend New Light

Good Day. Good Night. Old Friend. New Light  Acrylic on canvas 72 x 60 

 

Each painting is a remembering, a commemoration, and a ceremony of invitation that circles around the question of where we belong. Landscape painting has been for me an inevitable return to loving our natural world, crafting a way of devotional expression and praise.

A painting asks to be so much more than a recording of a thing. Paintings long to be born, out of hands, out of pigments, oil and the air in which they are being made. An artist's inspiration is matched with the process of illuminating what was before a blank surface. What was nothing, is now something. Much of my work is made slowly with oil paints, considering this creative moment and pausing often to notice growth and becoming.
