My recent paintings focus on local views associated with the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake as well as other scenes that interest me in the US and the UK, from recent trips and visits. My work looks beneath the surface capturing the inner essence, whether a landscape, a portrait, or still life; often portraying a sense of solitude. My style has evolved over time, but always seeks to explore the relationship of darks to lights.
