As an artist, I am interested in the different ways to manipulate a particular landscape and make it my own.  My intention is to lead the viewer through a painting in a way that, although highly abstracted, he/she could, upon close observation, discern elements that will suggest what I was trying to represent.  Some of the pieces are easily discerned, others where my original composition has elements of different pieces, are not.
