Artist Statement:

My main interest as a painter is to create an image where color sense and brush stroke are ascendant.

I like to paint outdoors and I paint wherever I may travel.  I like the light in my adoptive Italy.  I like the skies in my native  New York.  Whether painting fig trees and olive groves in Umbria or open fields at Indian Ladder Farm in upstate NY,  I am overwhelmed by the desire to construct a landscape and  capture the emotional pull the surroundings have on me.

I will return often to the scenery I am painting until the painting is completed.---  A year later or  two years later even so that I may see the same place again and paint it at  the same exact time of year.  I know the sky will be the same deep purple.  I know the trees will have the same leaves,  I know the horses will be grazing as they did when I was there last.  When a painting is unfinished it gives me reason to return to a favorite place and to anticipate another beautiful day.  

Sometimes when painting  I start the painting with no image in mind--then it gradually emerges and slowlyI find it.  This makes painting fun and the result is mostly rewarding.   I look for an image where color sense, brush stroke, and an emotional response are realized.  

I share great appreciation for the masterpieces by these artists;
Titian, Caravaggio,  Velasquez,  Manet,  Cezanne,  Matisse,  Morandi, Dickenson and Wolf Kahn.
