I wander in nature with open eyes, mind, and heart. I seek to experience nature without constraint or bias which might influence my perceptions. Is beauty to be determined? No, beauty is something to simply behold.
I enjoy working at different scales, from the delicate details of a flower to the expanses of a mountain landscape to the depths of the night skies. Within each scale there are infinitely deeper layers to be appreciated.
I rise early and stay out late, often taking in sunset, night skies, sunrise, and then the awakening world of flora and fauna. Then sleep finally...
I cannot leave a picture only as taken, it is owed my full attention until the colors spring from a printed page. I prefer to work in pastels and earth tones although the brilliant hues of sunrise and sunset are intoxicating.
All printing is done in my studio on an Epson P800 printer using only genuine Epson Ultrachrome HD pigment inks. I prefer satin and matte papers and source the papers from only Espon or Red River Papers. I also print on canvas in satin or matte and source the canvas only rom Red River Paper. Only oversized prints and large gallery wraps might be outsourced. Large panoramas may be outsourced depending on the size and mounting.
