How I see it
In my landscape paintings I try to seek out what nature has to offer in the way of shape, pattern,line and form. I then try to design my picture in a more gestural inventive way. Landscape is very manageable and malleable, I like to move things around (which I often do) to get a more painterly result.Painting for me is a voyage of discovery, I paint to find out what painting is all about, constantly searching for something different to say in the way I see and feel about the image.
No artist on earth can paint the beauty of nature as it exists, and not many painters would want to, my quest as an artist is to pass on my response and reaction to a given subject at a given time and hope that it connects and communicates in some way to the viewer.
