Out of all the possible subject matter to paint, water is by far the most intriguing, challenging and complex. Most of the waters I paint are in the mountains so they are usually completely translucent and invisible. Waters presence isn't shown by itself but by how it distorts the things around it. On top of that, it's in constant motion. Despite the challenges, these works of art show some of the most beautiful places I've ever had the opportunity to paint.
