"I particularly enjoy works that are vibrant, charged with energy both in colour and texture.  It is with the small format paintings that I wish to strengthen those characteristics.  They are a reflection of my thoughts and the seasons as I capture subject matter with my camera."

Always enthusiastic about trying new concepts, colour combinations and subject matter, it is very freeing to be able to accomplish this very quickly with oils using this smaller format while the idea is fresh in my mind."

"Larger than life" paintings will also remain a practice of mine that I am passionate about, however I will continue to explore the opportunities that present themselves through the smaller daily works.

Small format "daily" paintings are usually 6" x 6" x 1.5" deep on wood cradled panels.  Sides are painted a charcoal gray.  They may be hung but are equally effective sitting on shelves and mantles.  Prices range from $80.
