“The wild places are where we began. When they end, so do we.” ― David Brower.

      These bay area landscapes celebrate my affection and appreciation for the magnificently beautiful vistas surrounding our cities. 

     Our avarice sense of entitlement to land takeover at the expense of displacement, be that of humans, flora, or fauna. These defects are the downfall of humanity. These paintings are a record before nature or man makes its changes on it, one for the better and the other for the worse.
