"I look at the world and wonder...can I paint that?
The world is a beautiful place, full of beautiful things, both natural and man-made. It's inspiring! And trying to capture that inspiration is my life's most satisfying challenge!
My tools are ancient; oil paint, brushes, and canvas. And before satisfied I often find myself creating a series of paintings. After all, 'inspiration' can rarely be captured on the first try."
