NATURE ON MY MIND:  LANDSCAPES, SEASCAPES

Having spent my professional life in conservation, I take inspiration from majestic views of nature, especially of land and water, which provide all of us the foundation we need to enjoy life and to prosper. 

Though in recent years I’ve mostly shown artwork featuring urban themes, Nature on My Mind offers another take, another view, of what I see around me.  The work derives chiefly from the images and vistas I absorb when I travel, when I wander outdoors, when I take in the sunsets out the back window of my apartment, on the beach, in the mountains.

My sketchbook is ever at the ready, one or another drawing the inspiration for a painting.  Some of my paintings are based on actual places, others are imaginary or abstracted in what I call an expressionist style, somewhere along the spectrum between realism and abstraction.
