Oil Paintings

As the millennium forges on, our technological advances increase exponentially. I paint in oils on canvas and travel a parallel path. I am drawn to the open spaces and natural light of the land. These spaces can be frightening and deeply spiritual. As with earlier painters of the 20th century , I continue on this course. The spirit of the individual facing the future head on is what has made the American culture the vanguard going into the 21st century. But, as with any culture, we cannot and should not forsake our past. If our future is to become so technologically dominant, we will need paintings, such as mine, to keep our spirit rooted to our land.
