    Commentary

  • I have always been influenced by nature and the land. Living on a ranch in northeastern Texas for the past four years has moved that influence up a notch. I am surrounded by trees, pasture lands, sky, pond and a meandering creek. Looking out my windows in the house or the studio is such an inspiration…even in bad weather: I find something I never noticed before and it will appear in my work at some point. With all this said, I dont set out to paint what I actually see in nature. It just comes through as I work through my process. Whatever the medium, I strive to let the painting speak to me. I make revisions when I see that is where the painting is going. I have a conversation with the paint and the process. Without a social or political message, surface quality, marks and lines, color relationships and design are what I am most interested in when painting.
