Statement:

I have lived and traveled enough to know that the Pacific Northwest contains many of the most beautiful areas in existence. Being enough of a painter; intrigued by color, value and composition as visual elements of story-telling, I attempt to use my experience to describe this visual Northwest poetry. There is no shortage of important and beautiful subjects, paintings are everywhere! Time, unfortunately, is the only limit to this translation.
