“I love paintings that are rich with color and filled with light. I love brushstrokes that appear as if paintbrush danced across the canvas. I love plein air painting. Creating artwork in the warmth of the sunshine surrounded by the vivid colors of nature and the sounds of singing birds makes me feel at peace. It makes me feel close to God. It is being grateful for the small joys in life that inspires me to paint. ”
