The power that paint, especially oil and watercolor, has to pull me into deeper levels of reality is what draws me to the palette knife and brush.  Landscapes animated by dark shadows and brilliant sunshine have been my primary subjects until recently.  The dark realities of the destruction wrought by seemingly invisible drone wars and the climate crisis have drawn me to attempt to manifest their realities.  Paint allows for reflection and hopefully can provide a deeper appreciation of life as well as a commitment to cherish and take action to preserve it.
