I am a wanderer. I like to wander through the countryside or in the city – by car, by bicycle, or on foot. My constant companions are a pochade box – which allows me to do quick plein-air oil color sketches – and a digital camera. I also have several other easels that I use when making larger and more elaborate outdoor paintings.
While wandering I am constantly looking for scenes or objects that evoke an emotional response in me – something I just have to paint. This may be a majestic scene, an interesting object, a wonderful color, a special atmosphere, or a ray of sunlight striking a distant object. I am particularly interested in painting the effect of light on the landscape in the early morning and late afternoon or evening. These are the times for which I live – the time that has the most interesting light and the greatest emotional appeal to me. When I find something that interests me I try to capture it in paint.
