Statement from artist:
I record my world in an archival medium, without artificial interface between the subject and my eyes nor between my eyes and the emerging piece; painting with oils, out of doors, from direct observation. I strive to achieve paintings that not only are faithful recordings of the site and weather conditions but, upon closer inspection, can hold their own on an Abstract level of pure color and mark making. To make possible this dual existence of paint I believe two things are crucial. Practice, and a minimum of thought during the act of painting. Thinking gets in the way and leads to artifice; painting what you think is there rather than what is there. What the eye sees must be transposed directly to the fingers holding the brush. The muscles know precisely what chords of color to pick off the palette in response to what the eye has seen. Thus the paint is laid down with a minimum of thought but instead with the unconscious patterning of a muscle that has made this notation a million times before. The paint is laid down precisely enough to satisfy the needs of representing the subject, but with an immediacy enough to satisfy the Abstract demand that the paint be paint.
