Artists Statement
"Although my work would be categorized as landscapes, they would be better described as mindscapes, as all of the work is derived from a wide variety of inspirations. I seek to capture a moment rather than a place. It is the beauty of a summer evening sunset or listening to a beautiful piece of music that inspires the work. There is a feeling of warmth and a certain meditative quality which seems to emanate from each piece. The ultimate compliment for me is when individuals connect with the moments and feelings I try to capture." ~Eric
