' To use the great natural beauty of the Hudson and Mohawk valleys and reference their long history in my work presents a link for the viewer with the enduring beauty of nature. It is a connection with the past so as to not forget what has happened here, both historically and artistically.Painting, is for me, an expression of the everyday mysticism of the effect of light on the landscape. It shows the phenomena of weather and the gift of the sublime. It is important to record the landscape before it possibly disappears under encroaching development.'
