" The ‘Snow Series’ is, in part, about being present in the scene, painting from life, and recording a moment in time, a transient light. Painting outdoors in winter is, out of necessity, an immediate and direct practice of the painting process. Observing patterns of sunlight on snow, continuously changing shadows and reflections in water, breaks sunlight into its component colors, revealing a still and frozen secret world. At the end of the day, every color, mixed in paint, seems to end up on my freezing palette."
