Vision that exists only perhaps in my subconscious, my goal is not to reproduce a scene in detail, as a photograph, rather to capture the convergence of a moment in time,
to communicate an essence, to bring the viewer’s own memory and imagination in to play. the scent of the ocean on a chill breeze, the call of sea birds, the ever changing light.
In this way, in each of my paintings, if I have done my job, there is much more than meets the eye.
