California Impressionist Oil Paintings

Oil paintings of natural California come through me as an act of grace and reflect a current modern vibrancy and sense of place. I feel directly connected to nature, but I do not impose myself upon the scene before me; there is an undeniable energy that pulls me in and an underlying wild beauty that I intend to convey through art.  I am intrinsically inspired by the great oil paintings of the early California impressionists.

"Where the wild divine beauty reveals itself in nature, there I am."
