“ Why else does one write or paint, except to try to hold a little of that memory? ” — Sybille Bedford

My paintings mostly are completed in one sitting, alla prima, because I enjoy the spontaneity in my paintings. Also, my paintings mostly are of places that are usually overlooked, but if I spend a bit of time listening, the place will have something to share with me.

Inspiration and beauty do not have to be found in faraway places, and many are just outside our doorsteps. When I step outside to paint, I will have walked only a few blocks from my studio. I will soon setup to paint, and the land will gradually reveal itself.
