“There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Where do you find your peace in nature? Is it possible to lose ourselves completely in a place? Perhaps this is what I seek when I paint landscapes. It is a place that tells a story. It is a place where we walk the shores of the mind, perhaps calling back to that person we once were. That person we still are. Landscapes free us from the present. Landscapes take us to other places, transporting us to other moments in time. Landscapes remind us of never ending possibilities. There is no end place behind canvas. Those landscape paintings that hang in our homes are forever expanding beyond paint and brush strokes. They are a dream. My joy is to remind you of this dream so that you may live it. Witness it. And take it home.
