If I were to divide my life in half, before graduate school and after, I would describe my work in the first half as paintings of landscape and figures in the landscape, at the beach, in the studio. Images from the second half could be described as less direct, conceptual work that focuses more on the process of mark making, pigment, paint, and brushstroke. But, you could say that was true of the earlier landscapes as well.
Since moving to Wimberley I have become re-inspired by this landscape of sky, trees, water, and distances. I find myself working closer to German Expressionism than to the Impressionist, using brushstroke and color for the joy and expressiveness of it all.
