In my paintings, I hope to capture that unseen quality in the
landscape, the element that shapes how one might feel about a
place. I try to see the truth about the landscape in the dynamic
present. In that moment, I'm painting the changing light, shadows,
reflections, and weather, all within the constant of stillness.
As artists, we do our best to translate the scene in front of
us, sometimes changing a shape here and there without compromising
the elements of the whole so much that the painting's place becomes
unrecognizable. So, in the end, we use a fluid, dynamic process
to come up with a fixed representation of time--how this comes
together--dynamism and stillness--is always a mystery to me.
