When a writer describes art, they are challenged to translate sensations into words. A sip of wine, a concert in the mountains, or a new image all evoke feelings that go beyond words. So, I don’t try to describe my paintings by saying what feelings they should stimulate. That’s unique for each viewer.

What stimulates me, however, is being captured by the surprising and varied effects of light, whether coming through fall trees, touching a person’s face, a dramatic sunrise, or reflecting off of buildings in a city. Many of the places I’ve lived, Vermont, Sweden, England, Michigan, and the Colorado mountains all have unique and seasonal light effects that I love to interpret in my paintings.
