As a Contemporary Impressionist I paint mainly landscape and cityscape in oil. I enjoy painting picturesque subjects and destination spots that evoke fond memories to warm the heart, encourage the soul, and bring a smile to the face.I do not seek to render in photographic detail, but instead to create expressive, dynamic impressions so that a viewer can enter the scene personally, experiencing and
completing it for one’s self. I seek to paint “in light of eternity” to help the viewer connect with the spiritual longings of the soul.
I agree with Aristotle’s statement, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” And I believe the visual arts best serve humankind by joining nature in displaying the reality and beauty of our Creator (Romans 1:20). As an artist I merely “plagiarize God’s work.”
