The scenic landscape around his living place is a longtime inspiration for his work. Short moments that surprises him, such as a flash of sunlight, the power of a sunrise or silly clouds can activate him to set up a new painting. So the first attempt for a new work can be in a flash of a second, in daily life, while running, walking, driving etc., the practical implementation to reach a deeper mood takes a longer while. He uses his memories, views, sketches and photographs to process a painting. For him, art is a crucible of inner life and visible impressions.
His artworks are like some kind of a diary, a diary hidden in -mostly- landscapes. The works are not in the first place made for decoration, but they might (also) have a decorative value. His studio in in a former barn, in the ground layers of his work he sometimes uses bedding; wood fiber. Other materials for his work are gesso, acrylic, ink and/or oil on canvas/panel.
For his (brush)drawings, horses are a beloved subject.
Through the years he did several commission works such as murals and portraits, teaching and (local) exhibitions. He has always combined his art practice with parttime jobs and sports because he likes to be independent and it inspires him. At Artfinder he likes to show you also some of his earlier works, so you can compare them with more recent works and see probably changes through the years.
