I was recently asked to speak on Western Art at the University of Colorado. In the course of our discussion I was asked why I am doing these paintings and I was hard-pressed to find an answer. I love the plains of Colorado and Wyoming and am fascinated by the skies we see in the West. But I have come to realize that it's that line that defines the meeting of Sky and Earth that I am most interested in.

This view of the Taylor River , north of Gunnison, Colorado is a good example of what I am going through right now. My landscapes are starting to be more abstract and largely seem to address the horizon. But I love the way that water, be it in the form of creeks or rivers cuts through the land and the way that trees break up the sky and show light in their leaves. This feels like a learning period and I find that very exciting.
