The Roseate Spoonbill as it flies over the Everglades in the evening during a spectacular sunset. Inspiration for my painting comes from tapping into nature and drawing energy directly from the universe. My soul awakens as I tirelessly explore the earth with the forms and shapes and movement if offers me. Whether it be a landscape, a human figure or an abstract work; the viewer is guided on a spiritual journey. The subject is irrelevant; the goal is the transportation to another dimension- a meditative place to reflect. Here one can study the poetry that light and shadow writes as they play with each other endlessly bouncing around the earth. Visual mixing occurs with multiple layering of glazes, which creates a luminous glow and further explore the complexity of light and color. Painting alla prima enables me to portray the fleeting and every changing subtlety of color as it shifts in sunlight. My work is constantly evolving and changing as I explore and experiment with oil and acrylic pushing the boundaries and redefining painting.
