my inspiration

My paintings are very often inspired by discovering interesting places to paint on my dirt bike. Sometimes they will be in very remote locations 50 to 100 miles away from the main road. Not only do I find places which I would not be able to discover while hiking, but the excitement involved in finding those locations creates energy which translates onto the canvas. The dirt bike becomes an essential "tool" in my painting process.
