For the most part, my paintings seek to identify and accentuate the beauty in ordinary subjects. In this way, I hope to provide a temporary oasis from both mundane and monumental cares.
Even in the best of times “the world is too much with us, late and soon; we lay waste our powers and for everything are out of tune.” Quote adapted from The World Is Too Much With Us (Wordsworth)
Oil on Belgian Linen
24 x 30 in
The sigh of all the seas breaking in measure round the isles soothed them; the night wrapped them; nothing broke their sleep,
until, the birds beginning and the dawn weaving
their thin voices in to its whiteness
To the Lighthouse
All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full;
to the place where the rivers flow, there they repeatedly go.
There comes a time in a man’s life when he hears the call of the sea.
If the man has a brain in his head, he will hang up
the phone immediately.
