I consider this work not landscapes, but dreamscapes, or “memoryscapes”.  I am interested in the light and color we take from places that are meaningful to us and linger in our memories.  What are the minimal elements that build a visual image in our mind’s eye and the feelings we have about that place?   What gives a place it’s energy that makes it feel like home or a place we remember?  These paintings begin with a strong memory, and move toward obscurity, where it’s a little fuzzy around the edges.  Through these paintings, I attempt to use color and light to capture the spirit and create a sense of place.
