Landscapes, Florals and Animals

My curiosity about beauty has been my whole life. The question I usually ask or motivate me to paint is, what is it about this creature, plant, or this scene in nature striking me as so beautiful?

I won’t be capable of reproducing the beauty in its entirety, so I ask myself, what are the elements, scale, relationship of color, the pattern that is moving me to experience great beauty and awe of life? From this desire to capture a fraction, bit of that beauty or relationship of art elements.
