The personal narrative and landscape are at the heart and history of classical, realist American painting. To be able to see and express the profound beauty, dignity and gift of life through art can be transforming. At the very moment you begin to paint, stillness prevails and you become deeply involved in the present. Liberating the soul from the constraints of the external, you attempt to convey the sincere from a very profound and personal exchange. The journey is to continue exploring the narrative through time, translating the ephemeral to inspire and uplift the human spirit.
