Nature

It was with these images of nature that galvanized my thinking about approaching realist paintings with the eye of an abstract painter. This is the reason I use the large scale and the close cropping, eliminating references to the surrounding, which is usually the hallmark of a traditional landscape painting. Some of these paintings read like a Jackson Pollock painting, with its all-over composition. The difference, of course, is that every little mark in this painting is connected to something concrete.
