"There is a beauty to the passage of time and the effects it has on objects and people. Timeworn textures, a face with a story to tell, the patina of life are all things I like to portray. The passage of time is something we all have to deal with. I almost always paint these objects and people in a strong, raking sunlight with elongated shadows, which results in what I refer to as a ‘special visual moment,’ a moment when the ordinary is elevated to something memorable."
