For me painting is a necessity, is like breathe, eat, exist.
My paintings are the compile of sketches from life and from my imagination, backed up by photographs and memories; are a dialogue between the observed and the remembered, the planned and the surprise that happens on the canvas. They are the starting point for the exciting process of painting which is as much about imagination and experience as, about the rendering of specific landscape locations.
I use oil paint on canvas panels trying to show a glimpse of various life realistic seascapes, landscapes and urban scenes, capturing a sense of time and place, light and space in California.
Light is the main focus of most of my paintings, but also I love to depict water as I enjoy the way in which light is reflected and the patterns create by the ripples.
Painting in a variety of subjects matters-landscapes, seascapes, urban scenes, people, nature, animals, etc.
my goal is to paint with a freshness, energy and expression.
