Oil Paintings

These paintings combine the complementary visuals of texture and light with traditional oil painting pigments.  My process involves mixing oil paint with the raw materials of the earth often working synergistically with metallic powers or metal leafing.  My aim with this work is to encourage others to share in the beauty and mystery I sense in the natural world.
