Artist’s Statement

More difficult than technique is the challenge of subject. Inspiration comes at a fleeting moment and almost anywhere. Perhaps that is why the ephemeral, be it a wilting flower, a dog running by a road, or people taken out of themselves when viewing art can grab me. Sometimes I have to wait a long time for such an image to speak to me. My subject finds me. I don’t find it. When it does, I must be prepared with camera and sketch book. And then the laborious compositional work of extending and relishing the momentary begins. Art teaches patience.
