Landscapes, especially wetlands, are my favorite subjects to paint.  The diversity of colors, lighting, atmosphere, and reflections intrigue and fascinate me in their ever-changing qualities.  I try to capture the essence and mood of the landscape with color and light.  Its like looking through a window and expressing a moment in time.  I began working in pastels in 2001.  I am self-taught in the medium.  I compose the artwork in my mind as I am walking and paint later from memory, sketches, and photos.  I create my pastel paintings to help me translate the sense of beauty I see and feel in the natural landscape.
