I am fortunate to live in an inspiring spot on this planet
and have the time to focus intently on the way the
sunlight enhances my surrounds and brings it to life.
No matter how intimate I become with my subjects –
mesquite and cottonwood trees, dry creek beds, boulders,
crags, mountains and rim rock, to name just a few –
it is a challenge to capture the spirit of this country
on a flat surface with brush and paint.
