For a long time, I’ve yearned to take what I’ve learned painting from life outdoors and to bring it to a level that includes the spiritual. These paintings are the result of that yearning. With these works, I explore the spirit world–a world in which we are immersed but of which we often are only partly aware. Most of the paintings have a very personal meaning, but I believe that we share much of this in common. I leave it for the viewer to uncover the symbolism therein.
