There is an important personal reason behind my mountain landscapes.

I was brought up near the ocean, knowing that if I went east I would see the vast Atlantic. That gave me an innate sense of geographic location. But when I went to live in Kansas, I was lost until I found the mountains of Colorado. Knowing that if I went west I would get to the giant Rocky Mountains restored my sense of geographic location.

I think of that whenever I paint my mountain watercolors. And also I think of how perfect a media watercolor is for expressing the layers of
mountains that recede into the distance.
