Sometimes inspiration hits me like a bolt of lightning. Sometimes I go to work uninspired, and before long I’m humming, happy, immersed. When the painting seems to flow out of what I take in through my senses, nothing could be more fulfilling. The journey of change in what I seek to express is the only constant. Artists like Ray Strong or Milford Zornes painting into their 100th year personify how I hope to live.
I’m deeply grateful to Oak friends who have inspired me as humanitarians and great painters. Partnering with many esteemed conservation organizations, I’m proud of our team work saving open space and raising awareness of our precious environment.
