The healing qualities of art have always been the concern of the masters. Henri Matisse said:
"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or
depressing subject matter."
I traveled from Florida to New Hampshire to California in search of
the perfect subject matter: the full voluptuous forms of my abstract work, the
strong feel for the light and its source of my photorealism work.
Most of all, I had a vision of creating paintings so outstanding, so
beautiful, they would take my breath away.
I found all I was looking for and more in the awesome caverns and caves and
canyons of the great American Southwest.
