Turner is a great inspiration. "Indistinctness is my forte." Turner's work glows with light and everything is infused with motion. He is arguably our greatest landscape painter' None of his landscapes are static. My work emulates his. Landscapes are fluid; skies threaten, clouds move, grain sways, trees rustle. A city scape is frenetic with abstract traffic. Mist rises and a path beckons one into the scene. The canvas is attacked with knife and brush and enthusiasm. I like my paintings to exude moods and motion and the evolution of my art tends more and more to the knife and the abstract. I now live in San Diego next to the sea. My roots are in the prairies of Alberta and the mountains of the Canadian Rockies. I paint what I know from my past and my present and my travel destinations - whether it is a vista before me or a memory entrenched in my mind. One reviewer wrote: "Beautiful depth, perspective and feeling emits from these works of art. The artist actually takes you into the painting so that you can feel the work. I will look forward to keeping an eye on future works!" - Laurie Ruffner, Executive Director at Bitterroot Performing Arts Council Less
