Light on Canvas

The summer of my youth was spent in a cabin in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. I loved waking up in the early morning and observing the diffused light hitting the trees and mountains, like a musical melody giving the atmosphere an ethereal mood. I knew then that I had this passion to capture on canvas the effects of morning light on trees, mountains, and lakes.

Later in life I moved to California, and my horizons expanded, to painting the effects of light in cityscapes, seascapes and florals. My work has both a representative and impressionistic style, with the lighted areas being the center of interest.

My desire is to paint these scenes and preserve their memories.
