Tell me about your work.

They are oils on wood. Most of them are on maple wood. I cut down all my pieces by hand. I create an interesting edge, so they are not all square pieces. I follow the wood grain to let each of my paintings build the landscape from there. I listen to the soul of each piece.

Wait. I have a couple of trees that I need cut at my house. Do you go around cutting trees or do you mean once someone gives you a piece of wood you cut that piece into something you can use.

I actually do both. I have a bunch of walnut stumps in my driveway that are being seasoned. It takes about a year to season those types of woods. While those are working its magic, I get wood from my local lumber yard. I also go to the Amish country to get some of the specialty woods.

Anything else?

I create all of these pieces from my head. I don’t have a set imagery in mind. They are all stylized landscapes
