In early 2017 I traveled to Costa Rica. The images on the left are a digital reproduction of my Costa Rica sketchbook. It was a small book: 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2 “. Materials used in the sketchbook are pencils, fine point markers, watercolor pencils and watercolors.
Since then I have moved to a small town in southern Vermont named Bellows Falls.The images in this column are from my current sketchbook – a record of my time here.
“I am experienced in a variety of media. My work travels back and forth through personal interpretations of the natural world to curious statements from the subconscious. In terms of the landscape or interior, I tend to favor the close-up view or the odd angle.
t recognizable, representational images, but I don’t consider myself to be a “realist”. Even when I work directly from the living image, my paintings retain a sense of ambiguity and playfulness of color.”
