Mirroring the surrounding landscape, these paintings of inland water

give us a feeling of escape and introspection.

Lakes and ponds capture fallen foliage and colors of the sky, while a

change in vantage point reveals a murky world of dark greens and

browns. Smoothly blended brush strokesand washes let us look into the watery deep.

Retreating and overflowing creeks, rivers, and wetlands feed these

momentary visions in oil or acrylic; short streaks and dabs of paint

form the ripples and speckled colors of their dynamic surfaces.

Thick and thin paint application accentuates textures of grasses and

reeds contrasting with smooth wet surfaces. Tactile pleasure in the

mediums draw us close to the canvas and into these painted idylls.
