When I started painting I wished to paint the view as seen by a surfer floating on the line-up and waiting for the next wave. When painting an image from the ocean vantage point I try to capture the feeling from line-up, taking in the peace and beauty of the moment, and make it permanent. I feel that the surfer's view, looking back toward the shore, on the edge between land and ocean, is an unique perspective. In my paintings I aim to recreate the feeling of distance from the shore (from everyday life?) and the dance of sky and shore reflections on the water which is always changing with the infinity ocean moods.
My newer works synthesize and illustrate a vision rooted my past. I use intense colors to make vanishing memories vivid images and recapture a fading dream or a distant event.
I paint mainly with acrylics and I paint slowly; a small painting may take several weeks. I go back and forth with modifications until I am satisfied with the result.
