At the moment, I am exploring the interplay between light and shadows, a common theme in many of my artworks.  Shadows give dimension to the landscape on a psychological level.  The shadows take us through morning to dusk, from the softness of light to the bright intensity of the fullness of the sun.  The shadows give us a resting place and a hiding place but they also unwittingly illuminate and bring focus to other objects.  It is this simple harmony that I seek in the completion of a painting.
