The intent of my art is simple –to share the beauty I see in nature with others.
I often visit national and state parks, family farms, rodeos, some of the 10,000 lakes here in Minnesota, and even go on Sunday drives in the country to be inspired by the beauty of animals and nature. A camera is always within my reach during any trip I take.
Once I have an image that really captures my interest, I create the initial sketch on the canvas and then begin the creation process. After the paint used for color blocking of the sketch dries, I use a wet on dry layering technique, often with very bold colors. The multiple paint layers filled with unexpected coloring and texture, along the interest created by a bit of abstraction within realistic figure, brings an energy and depth into my work which I feel helps to showcase the beauty of my subject. A great deal of brushes, palette knives and time spent “watching paint dry” are involved with each work to give the impression of what an animal was feeling at that one point of time: relaxation, curiosity, hunger, attitude.
