In my work in contemporary realism I try to capture the meaning of the Latin phrase, finitum capax infiniti, "the finite is capable of the infinite," which means that there is no access to the infinite except through the finite. It is an apt description of the tenuous connection between the material and spiritual world.

My quest is to try to capture this in two dimensional form, and the technique of glazing in oils seems to suit the subject matter and my temperament. This slow layering of color corresponds to the patina of living that inexorably descends upon a particular place. Glazing is a painting method that allows me time for careful thought. I concentrate on interior scenes and more symbolic landscapes.
