I have had a long fascination with the combined effect of light and time on landscapes. I have been in awe of the light I have experienced in the landscape at different times of day and in different seasons. I wanted to explore it further through my painting. The fleeting time and loss of light that we experience toward twilight, the light that gradually gets stronger with the morning, then the day; the mysteries of darkness and the pockets of earthly and unearthly lights that appear in the urban night. The brightness of the sun that can be so strong that it blurs and one looks to shade for comfort. We feel a variety of effects from light seen at different times.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
