My paintings are about my reverence for water. They reflect my concern for the environment. Clean water and clean air are close to my heart as essential aspects of life. That is whatinspires me to paint.
Sometimes I paint on heavy-weight mylar. I like itsreflectivecapacity, transparency, and its ability to be rolled and manipulated in many three dimensional ways.
I choose my sites because they are places forcontemplation. I feel passionate about seeing and hearing flowing water. All the many things that water represents come rushing to my mind--its power, purity, meditative capacity, the ions that give you a “lift,” the way that water is constantly recycling from clouds to rain to rivers, how it sustains life, provides recreation, and transports us to far off places. The effects of the seasons, the ebb and flow of water and the play of light and shadow on rocks and mountain streams especially captivate me. All these aspects contribute to a feeling of renewal and tranquility.
