The motion and patterns of nature attract me with its varied rhythms and replicating tempos. I feel I inhabit those tempos as I inhabit the moving patterns & reaction of waves and flora against the wind. Painting seascapes and skies on metal and canvas gives me opportunities to create textures and interact with the variable moods of nature. I paint in watercolor, oil and acrylic striving for luminosity, color harmonies and rhythms in concert with a unified sensation of motion. Painting for more than 30 years and, having taught students and adults has provided a inspiration and insight which enrich and inform my work. My works demonstrate how I am a vehicle for the expression of the rhythms of nature. My art can be seen in galleries, libraries, member shows, & private collections.
