The casual abstract patterns and compositions served up by nature moment by moment have always attracted my attention. With this awareness, and a lifelong recreational involvement with the Southern California coast, the area where water and land meet has become a rich source of inspiration for my paintings. These paintings are an effort on my part to evoke emotions and moments easily recognized by anyone with a fondness for the shoreline.
