When I wake up in the morning, I thank God for allowing me to experience another beautiful day.

I’m often surprised when I realize that everything going on around us changes every single moment. In other words, there are always changes happening, especially small ones, that we can’t observe with the naked eye.

A tree or a blade of grass grows a little bit taller every moment. The sun, clouds, wind and the moon in the sky over us keep moving and changing. That is why the light and shadows surrounding us never stay static. Over time and throughout each season, they shift just enough to reveal different shapes and different shadows.

These changes in nature that make it seem as if it is wearing different clothing every day are so beautiful to me. I am enraptured with awe and wonder and I thank God for the blessing of being allowed to see, touch and feel this changing nature one more day.

I especially love nature’s diversity, and I paint landscapes that are dynamic and convey a harmonious balance of light and shadow. Such scenes always call to me. I feel compelled to try and describe them through my art, and to use my art to express my emotions.

I am happy to be a painter. There is an amazing satisfaction in being able to capture this beautiful world in paint.

I love that I can create another view of a landscape that not only conveys my feelings, but perhaps allows the viewer to experience the scene in another way by seeing the different colors I use—colors that don’t appear to the naked eye.

Expressing my vision with a harmonic color palette has always been my goal. I believe, however, that I am still in the beginning stages of painting. There is a really long way for me to go before I will be able to fully express everything in my head.

I’m not sure when I will reach the point where I will be completely satisfied. I may never get there, but I will never stop trying. I’m motivated by Claude Monet who did not giving up painting even when he could not see clearly in his old age.

I am sixty-six this year. Many people think I am old. However, I am not ready to put down my paintbrush and let time just pass me by. I want to continue to paint this amazingly beautiful world in an increasingly beautiful way, by adding colors extracted from my heart and my life experience. I would be quite happy if my viewers come away with a feeling of warmth and happiness when they look at my paintings. I would say that is my ultimate goal as a painter.
