"The landscape is always in a state of change. A single place offers limitless faces - the passage of time is the only constant. This is why I return, again and again, to many of the same locations. I take liberties with color, light, the framing of a view and the specific features of a given landscape. My goal is to create a memory of a place that resonates for me and for others. Painting these pictures is an opportunity to slow down, observe and experience a landscape as a way of appreciating the planet Earth."
