the illusion of space, a place, or a landscape, probably predates
true artistic expression. It was most likely used to convey
the location of an bison herd, or distance to the next water
source or geographic obstacle. Painting landscapes is a satisfying
way for me to convey a sense of place or environment, and share
my impressions with others. It also allows me to re-experience
a destination, and to accent the elements that inspired me.
inspirations and references for my landscapes, are drawn from
memory of my journeys, pure imagination or from my large file
of landscape photographs.
