My painting technique, and my philosophy, can be described in one word - light. The Old Renaissance Masters, like Da Vinci and Rembrandt, recognized that light is the reflection of nature, of life itself. Their paintings are masterful portraits of life. I have spent the last ten years studying their technique. I want viewers of my artwork to feel as if the painting were glowing and radiating its own light source. Light is everything in my paintings: Light is both my primary technique and the symbol of God's life-giving, healing nature. Light from the moon or the sun washes across all my paintings. Light represents Life - the essence of all living things, the spirit of nature.
Even as a child, I knew art improved my life. But, it wasn't until I was an adult, that I recognized art also has the power to heal the mind and body of others. Art can rejuvenate the human imagination and re-energize a wilting human spirit. My father and I painted the tranquility of nature together as he battled two separate life-threatening attacks of cancer. He recovered completely. He credits his recovery to the healing power of rendering nature in art. It was only later that I discovered that many research studies have proven that art can, and does, promote healing.
My art was included in a research study, testing the healing effect of art on hospital patients. Previous research has established that Alpha brain waves stimulate physiological healing. The test determined that my art induced the largest measurable quantity of Alpha brain waves in test patients shown images from hundreds of different artists. Because of the result of that study, my art now decorates hundreds of patients' rooms in U.S. hospitals.
When I paint I travel to the peaceful places of my imagination. I grow more serene. My heart rate appears to slow down. My breathing becomes slow and rhythmic. The responsibilities of modern life are put in perspective: they become much easier to accept. I am reminded of what is important: family and the beautiful grace of God's nature. When communing with nature on the canvas, peace and tranquility flow through me.
I am closer to my family and more in tune with the heartbeat of the Earth, when I am painting nature's perfect harmony. I feel calmer and think more clearly. Peaceful memories come flooding back, like, moonlit walks on the beach with my wife.
Art has the power to improve your life. Allow the Light of nature, of life, to wash over your body and soul.
