“Painting ‘en plein air’ has been my focus in the last ten years. Painting is something I not only enjoy doing, but something I need to do. It is a language of color and tone that brings richness to my soul. It becomes a spiritual act of worship while I marvel at the beauty of Creation. I want people to feel peace when they look at my paintings — peace, beauty, contentment, a feeling that all is well in their soul. I paint out of my own faith in a God who creates beauty, a God who loves, a God who provides. When a viewer tells me my art speaks to them, I am fulfilled. ”
