Inspired by the majestic skies of my adopted hometown, Las Vegas, I strive to capture the brilliant colors and movements that float across the horizon. The beauty and vibrant hues found in the myriad of flowers is also a major source of inspiration for my work. Previously a more realistic style painter, I now concentrate on the abstract where a stray flower petal, the partial curve of a leaf, or just the suggestion of a graceful stem may appear in a painting of a flower. Other lyrical subjects embody the whimsical and are meant to assist the viewer in embracing happiness in life. To create such a joyful image through the juxtaposition of jewel-toned hues and soothing background shades provides me with a motivating and fulfilling challenge.
