"Other than the vegetables and fruits in my garden, I thoroughly enjoy studying and watching our many birds, and so have begun to sketch and paint them. During our recent trip to Mexico, the series of paintings I worked on consisted of the sand pipers, egrets, and (two) herons. They were feeding at the edge of the surf, and focused enough to ignore the humans walking by, but not the chasing dogs. It was fascinating to watch them devour the lower life crustations as well as maneuver the surf.

As artists, we're so influenced by our environment, and it's completely natural to express those parts of life that are most important to us. Nature is one of those things for me."
