Color, Light, Reflection

Whether it is the sun rising or setting over a body of water or city lights sparkling on wet pavement I am drawn to reflections.I love the shimmer of light and the extra dimension reflected light and deep shadows add to our reality. I find there is a sense of mystery when painting dusk or nocturnes. While inspired by a particular moment in the landscape, or in the city, I do not aim to literally represent it in my painting. When working on site I will hold my initial inspiration and work with it even as the light and colors change. Often those plein air paintings are used as references for larger studio works. In the studio I have more time to develop the image and to let instinct guide me to create a painting that reflects the experience I want to share.
