When an orchid sits around the house for very long it begins to ask, in a low but persistent murmur, to be painted. The elegance of the orchid is complemented by the cut glass goblet and the wine bottle subtly suggested with minimal definition. The background of black draped cloth stands in stunning contrast to the white blossoms and provides reflected light tinting those blossoms in the shadows.

Working with a limited palette of 4 colors I attempt to provide a realistic rendering of my subjects which include portraits, landscapes, florals, still life arrangements and the odd architectural structure.
"I treat every painting as a portrait in an attempt to bring to the canvas the life and essence of the subject whether a human face or something from the natural world. Each subject speaks to me in a unique way."
