Abstract: Nature has long been a prime source of subject matter for my paintings. Here I find the wonderful earthy browns, reds, and yellows, the warn tones which have their personal appeal, and chiefly dominate my palatte. From this source come all the forms an artist may discover, and again and again these forms will group and regroup to become new forms, each to be seen through different eyes and each to be subjected to personal interpretation. The landscape painter reaches out and embraces whole sections of countryside. He may include miles of territory or a small bit of nature enclosed in its surrounding atmosphere. Often he penetrates deep into the background, selects generously from the vivid foreground, and with experiences from his left and right and in his mind's eye, he creates his painting.
