Until Tomorrow



Painting always brings me peace. I am drawn to waterscapes, colors and craftsmanship. One example of this is Old World architecture. The fine details illustrated a time when the craftsman believed his work represented who he was. I choose to paint what represents that excellence and beauty of life. My subjects usually contain those moments in life that make me stop, catch my breath and stare. And when I paint, I feel like I am drawn into to the location of my painting.

My background as a US Marine and engineer has substantially influenced my artwork. Learning about the physics of fluids and gases, how they move, and the forces applied to them gives me a comprehensive knowledge of how water and air (clouds) move. Studying physics and the dynamics of light, reflection and the color spectrum highly developed my ability to use light. My engineering taught me building construction and helps me know and understand structures, angles and perspective. My biology and anatomy classes give me insight into the physical form.

I apply science, math and marine training to my work to create a Marrazzo tradition realism style resplendent of details. The details of my paintings are a representation of the character and heart of the builder, whether that builder is Mother Nature or a gifted craftsman. Since oil painting allows long drying times, I have more time to perfect the details in my paintings. The result is that you can feel as if you are right there with me, in those details, I share where I have walked. I want you to feel as if you are right there, actually walking up the steps, admiring the craftsmanship, or touching the flower, sharing the experience with me as you walk where I walk.
