Capturing the light and colors is what its all about for me. It's what has always delighted me being born and living most of my life in the high deserts of New Mexico. This is true whether I'm painting an outside landscape, creating in my studio or working on a large abstract piece. It turns out that I'm always painting the landscape. I'm inspired by the beauty, the wide open spaces and the big skies. I may be painting a foreground or middle ground but I want the viewers eye to move through the painting and travel beyond experiencing a feeling of transcendence to a beautiful distant space. Abstraction allows my emotions to be expressed and creates a new way of viewing our environment.
