Painting renews my good attitude towards life. I am drawn to landscapes, light, color and detailed craftsmanship. I’m detail oriented. Not surprising when you consider that I am an engineer and a Marine. Details are an integral part of my life. My subjects usually contain those moments in life that make me stop, catch my breath and stare. My style delivers those details and represent the character and heart of the builder, whether Mother Nature or a gifted craftsman. By providing details, I share where I have walked. I want the viewer to feel as if they are right there, actually walking up the steps, admiring the craftsmanship, or touching the flower and enjoy the moment as I have.
I prefer to paint with oil paints, since oils allow long drying times. Thus, I have more time to perfect the details in my paintings.
