Natures total inspiration delving deep into the rugged and rustic elements of spirit, wind, the spaces between supposed reality, mountainous terrain, and of course earth and all that that entails. These are what drives me deep into the unknown to ask why and to allow brush and palette to capture the essence to the abundance I see out along a river bank or up on a rocky ridge. The kind of bliss one must attain I can only imagine as an Astronaut takes their first journey into space and looks back to earth knowing what it is yet seeing something totally foriegn, somehow an another reality.
My desire is always to capture the essence of what it is with the use of brush stoke and tonal variance above all else.
The selection of subject matter that I tackle in vast, so I am constantly able to grow not being stagnant or stuck for inspirational elements to paint. All that I need is the seed to be sown as I or rather my mind is the furtile ground, what I harvest is for the viewer to appreciate at least ones effort. As we all have different tastes that is one of the great gifts of being human.
I was destined to be an Artist as I have a strong paternial right brain/creative bunch of fellows that somehow passed on the gifts of creating something marvalous out of brush and pigment as well ink and parchment for my poetry is also a huge facility of my mind.
This is who I am.
