The works in this exhibition are representative of my feelings and thoughts about nature. The subject is unlimited as a source of inspiration for painting. The media of oil, watercolor, and acrylic were used in the traditional manner and investigated innovatively as well. Each painting is a reflection of a personal experience but is not unfamiliar to most people. I’ve attempted, however, to make each statement in a slightly different, or unusual way, so as to stimulate the viewer into seeing that which he so often takes for granted.
