My paintings of the interiors and exteriors of temples are creative works of art which attempt to convey an atmostphere of serenity. I tend to use warm, dark rich colors which contribute to the feeling of peace. The edges of forms which appear in my work are generally softened so as not to create an unwanted sense of movement.This is why I choose candles, lamps and lanterns as my chief sources of light. This light is a central focus of my paintings and represents the wisdom that can dispel darkness. It is a symbol of purity and insight.
