"Painting is meditation, adventure, exploration. Painting takes me places I wouldn't normally go.
It helps me see things I wouldn't normally see. While painting from Life, I am closer
to nature. I am a part of nature. I am connected. I see light, atmosphere,
distance, mood. I hear the sounds, feel the wind. I experience the space, the time,
and all that changes. Out in the world painting, is where I belong."
