"Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing at all." –Marc Chagall
As a deep Nature Lover, when I'm out there plein air painting a scene, or remembering the experience in the studio, I try first, to explore and get a sense of 'what is that special feeling here' calling me to paint it?
Where is the 'Magic', or the 'Love' coming from? That is what I most want to share!
When a person stands in front of my finished painting and feels 'that energy'
then, I have accomplished my goal.
I want my work to transcend merely copying a place visually.
I want you to 'feel' that magic I felt being there!
