Reality is completely beyond description.  I hope and hope to be able to capture an aspect of it in a painting, to reveal a bit of the transcendent beauty of things, to point to the unimaginable.  I feel a constant inability and it's not for lack of skill or precision.  It's from having seen just how magnificent this world is.  It's from standing on the beach in the middle of the night and seeing the moon above the ocean.  It leaves something glowing in my heart.  From years of looking, feeling and letting this world in the task of somehow representing an aspect of its beauty seems impossible.  But of course I'll never give up.  the glow is always there in one way or another.
