My work in this section can be divided into two groups:
This series of works constitute a visual diary of my painting excursions to The Natchez Trace in Mississippi and locally at The San Pedro Retreat on Lake Howell. I like to use acrylic paint because it dries so fast in the open air and forces me to respond quickly and intuitively to my surroundings. I enjoy painting like this because it forces me to trust my eyes and not “think” the painting to death.
These dream-like landscapes are strictly from my imagination. Every morning when I wake up the visual camera in my mind’s eye is rolling. It is recording everything I see whether I access it or not. These landscapes are not bound by location. They are a documentation of my attempt to bring forward to the paper subliminal images recorded as I move throughout the environment.
