"I have spent my life developing a unique style of painting that I call Open Impressionism. I started painting in oils when I was very young, about 8 years old. My style was actually inspired by rock climbing. I really like using lush, juicy brush strokes that jump off the canvas and really vivid, alive color that captures the emotion I feel when I am outdoors hiking and backpacking."
"You can see the kind of abstract shapes of the paint as they are layered onto the canvas.
"I want my paintings to capture the excitement of the landscapes I have discovered
and give the viewers a sense of peace and escape from ordinary life."
"I actually create my full range of colors using a limited palette.
From only 4 or 5 different colors I can create hundreds of different tones and values."
"I hope this book inspires you to bring more color and beauty into your life."
