Artist Statement: “If ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, then beautiful art is equally elusive…or abundant.  The discriminating childlike-eye of the artist is frequently able to distinguish overlooked objects and scenes, choosing to bring them to light through his craft.  Often a simple object reflecting light from the dark shadows of a tree or window are all that is needed to elevate a scene from common to extraordinary.  Images that are repeatedly painted and understood as 'beautiful', for me frequently loose their power.  Therefore, I seek out the 'routine' in everyday life, and attempt to elevate it through my art.  This 'window' may assist in freezing time and allow a glimpse of reality in a quickly changing world.  My choice of medium is an opaque watercolor medium known as 'gouache'.  Similar in character to watercolor, it can be used in either transparent or opaque painting techniques.  As gouache is the more 'brawny' version of watercolor, the medium encourages more daring and perhaps careless handling, with the understanding that 'mistakes' (both useful and otherwise) can be either kept or covered.” – Chris Baker
