As a landscape painter, I am caught up in the moment but that it is constantly changing. One of my great challenges is coping with this reality of change. I chase the impression. As soon as I set up - everything changes. As soon as I lift my brush - the moment has passed. In reality, I am always painting from memory. I have resigned myself to this fact. These fragile fragments and impressions themselves are changed by the act of trying to represent them in paint. I have very distinct moments that are constantly aserting themselves in my work. It is not so much an exact place or time that I am trying to evoke but rather my story about that moment.
