My landscape paintings are often inspired by a sense of the landscape passing by as the viewer travels, resulting in images of roads, bridges and the streaking scenes on the edges of highways. These subjects let me paint in a style that I enjoy the most–loose and active. I try to achieve a paint quality that suggests a fleeting memory, and use bold colors to turn the desolate or banal into a pleasantly nostalgic moment.
