Summer Island, Muscongus Bay

The content of my paintings lies beyond the visible features of woods and rocks and water. My intention is to convey the sense of a place; the moving air, the solidity of rock and the transience of water and the strength of the ground beneath. I feel a great affection for the otherness of the natural world, for a place which I have just entered which existed autonomously before I saw and felt it, and which continues to exist when I leave. What I depend on is the separateness of wilderness.
