The Artist on His Art:
I specialize in realistic, Western landscapes. My artwork features views from Big Bend, Texas and the West. To me, I like to paint what I see; to represent the time, place and generation I live in. I prefer to document the world as I experience it just as it is, now in this moment in time. When I am researching a painting, I naturally gravitate towards contrast. Contrast of near or far, light and shadow, or bright and muted, is a consistent theme in my work. I love open spaces, where you can see distant mountains or shores and wonder how far away they are. I like to paint the fleeting effects of sunlight that come and go too quickly to fully appreciate the beauty they reveal.
