When we surround ourselves in the great outdoors, we absorb the beauty of the unique sights and sounds that allow us to be present in the moment. Their impressions, though blurry in our memories, stay with us long after our return to our familiar homes. My abstract landscape paintings aim to bring the soothing, healing energy of these special places to the viewer through rich and vibrant colors, pooled together abstractly and blended together in unique and dynamic ways.
Growing up in Maine afforded me a rich environment of mountains, fields, lakes and ocean from which to explore and draw inspiration. These beautiful vistas have become impressions of color and light in my brain, creating a mood and feeling that I want to translate into fine art and share with you, the viewer. It’s never about representing a scene exactly as I saw it. As I strip away the excess, what is left is the very essence of a place in time, a jewel for your wall, that can be reflected upon and enjoyed over and over again.
