Creating landscape paintings has become a way to bring clarity to those overlaps, as the veil between dreams and reality wears thin. Each image is from a location that I have hiked to, camped at, or sat and quietly gazed upon. They are an exploration of the wonder and solitude that I experience there, as well as the fascinating light, textures and colors that attract my eye like moth to flame. They are entries to a journal of the places where I've found my focus again.
