Artist's Statement

I started playing with color rather recently.

I had mostly used more muted colors in my paintings in the past. Then a trip to Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island, a summer resort, opened my eyes to using brighter color.

 I also occasionally tone my primed canvasses with yellow ochre, which peeks through here and there and livens things up.

 I work from photo references and I also sketch and paint in plein air quite frequently. All of which keeps me in practice to paint with a fluidity which I like.  I mean to make every mark count for something and I try to keep it simple.

I am aiming for lively and colorful paintings.
