This body of landscape paintings reflects my visual response, deep appreciation for, and love, for the intense beauty found in the Yucatan and on Isla Mujeres. My focus has been to capture the light at various times of day and its fugitive effects on the organic forms found in the sea, sky, and land. Working from photographs I have taken at sunrise, sunset, and midday, I develop a workable emotive visual syntax of  interpretive brushstrokes on the canvas support, using atmospheric perspective as a scaffold to uphold my vision. These landscape paintings are reflective of my strong desire to create a sense of place, tapping into the pleasurable sensations we feel and experience when we’re viewing the rolling waves of the Caribbean while walking along the Malecon, Playa Norte, or on Dog Beach in La Gloria.

 

My influences are many, but the Impressionists, such as Claude Monet, and the Post Impressionists, such as Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh, have always been inspirational. I am also a huge fan of The Toronto Group Seven Painters, as well as painters like Wolf Kahn, Wayne Thiebaud, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Paul Klee, and Georgia O’Keefe.
