The colors I use in my work have been sampled from the environment and are matched on site. The samples are taken into the studio where larger amounts of matched colors are mixed. Reflections from water, festering storm clouds and September's exhausted foliage are among the seasonal colors sampled from nature.

Analogue ~ Digital - This series of paintings uses sampled colors from the natural environment compressed into lines of color information. The structure of these paintings maintains a polarized organization. The optical and aural effects of purling water, the cross section of sediment and the droning oscillations of summer cicadas are among the alias composites of these landscapes. I start composing a painting with a single horizontal line as a strip of color information. The rest of the lines unfold intuitively thereafter following the internal structure defined by the paintings geometry.
