My Painting Philosophy

I love the fact that light seems to engender a sense of universal & almost irresistible optimism.

It is this optimism that I am endeavoring to convey in my paintings.

I am also intrigued by the mysterious and immense energy of color;
Color helps to enhance this play of light and intensify this feeling of joyfulness.
