I've painted with acrylics since the early 70’s, adapting my methods and techniques to a practical system that works for me. I'm primarily a studio painter, working from my own photographs and notes. I like to take time with my work, approaching the creative process unrushed and thoughtfully. While I limit myself to a split primary palette (two reds, two blues, two yellows, plus white), I enjoy taking advantage of the boundless creative properties of the medium which makes for an eclectic body of work from serene to robust, best reflecting my personality and taste.
My paintings are an echo of the places I visit and settings that I know and treasure -- land and seascapes, mountain views, farm animals, seasons, and beautiful light...whatever catches my eye. And what a joy to live under a New England sky! I get the atmosphere and convincing light I’m compelled to display in my work as I embrace the reality of beauty and truth. A favorite quote from St. Paul serves as a mindset for my creative expression.
“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
