Story

These paintings came from trips into the Japanese countryside. It took a long time to find these places and now I have a number of favorite haunts. Some of them, like visiting Ubuyama, came from family trips that my wife planned. Yufudake is a mountain I got stuck on all night! And Shonai is a place that I often intended just to drive through but then I happened to see something interesting and so stopped and did a painting. The Stony path is from Kuju is a beautiful national park that I love to visit.
