My landscapes consist of scenes from my national and international travels. Some were painted on location and some were derived from photographs I took specifically to be used for paintings. They tend toward an impressionistic style. Through them I chronicle the intensity of that moment during which they are captured: the passage of light and atmosphere; the place where I stood painting and quiet while surrounded by the movement of people, breezes through the trees and clouds passing the sun; the rise and fall of the day's heat; the feelings evoked during a rarified time, in a place where I am confronted by vistas or people that are far different from my everyday experience.
My portraits of dancers and musicians reflect my ongoing interest in flamenco and is a result of my contemplation of the differences between the ephemerality of music and the concreteness of art. Being a visual person, I find musical people, especially dancers, fascinating. Their ability to take something that is as invisible as a sound and translate it into movement is an endless source of interest for me.
