These paintings are about how color changes as it moves through space, in specific light, and how these shifts create structure in a painting.

The location is new to me: a mountain town in Central Mexico, where I lived for four weeks mid-winter.

Light and shadow on stone, stucco and fountains presented color intricacies that made me itch to paint.

The visual information gathered kept my practice going well after my return home, and now folds into my work as I observe phenomena in Maine.

I hope this work goes beyond travel painting, so that the paintings represent themselves and awaken some sensations in the viewer.
