The Farm
In these paintings, I try to recreate the feeling of locations on the fruit farm where I grew up. There were certain spots on the farm that drew me like magnets, and in my painting I make places for myself to go and remember how it was to ride my horse Black Beauty through the orchards, vineyards, woods and fields. There is a story in the painting of my experience in those places.
