Mark's Art Journey

I have traveled many miles on the canvas, road, and within, to grow as a painter. I keep experimenting -- learning. Behind every brushstroke is every journey. My travels stretch my imagination. They provide knowledge and insight. They help define what I say with oil paint.

Painting on location helps me see beyond the exactness of a photograph. Being in-the-moment, values and colors are more fresh, pure. However, it's the spontaneous dialogue with nature and the joyful connections with people that I treasure most.
