May 3 – June 2, Portland Art Gallery, Opening Reception May 3 , 5–7 p.m.
I am fortunate to live in a part of the country that is picturesque, and I am constantly aware of the natural beauty of Maine when I step out my door every morning. The Maine coast and the tidal marshes nearby inspire my landscapes. I hope to evoke the feeling of being in the landscape by communicating the quality of light and color, the feel of the breeze and vastness of space. I most often work from imagination, memory, and intuition to convey atmospheric perspective and timelessness in nature. I am an artist because I want to know what it is to be alive. To be present. I want my paintings to reflect a moment in time as an experience of what it is to be human tethered to this mortal coil.
