Artist Statement:
The subjects of my paintings have been chosen not because they fulfill traditional canons of beauty but because they delight and move me. I paint portraits of relatives and friends, scenes taken from vacation visits and excursions and, generally, images and sights from my common experience. I would hope that my paintings capture the radiance of some of these, that the objects, figures, landscapes and flowers appear in all their harmony and completeness, giving to the viewer a momentary revelation, an epiphany.
