I am drawn irresistibly to the landscape, its forms and colors and particularly its light, which varies so dramatically at different times of day and in different seasons of the year.

Beauty is always an important consideration for me. I can’t paint a subject if I don’t see something beautiful in it, something which impels me to lift my heart and mind to God in gratitude for the privilege of being here to wonder at it all.

Several of the paintings in this exhibit were once in the collection of Gail and Jean Platt, whose support for my work through the years came at times when it was deeply needed. For that, and for the warmth and sincerity of their friendship I will always be grateful.”
