The Minimal Landscape

My paintings are about emotion. The big sky over minimal landscape is the subject I use to convey this. Whether a stormy day or a peaceful morning, color and texture evoke a “memory” and thus an emotional response.

I especially enjoy painting the stormy sky and horizon line devoid of human presence. This very emptiness allows the imagination to soar and give way to personal interpretation.

On this page are but a few of the many paintings I have exhibited in galleries and museums. 

September 25, 2012, the view from my studio as the storm was clearing.

This painting was exhibited at the Imago Gallery in Warren, RI and is now in a private collection.
