Painted places is an ongoing project based on my fascination with graffiti on the landscape. For many it is an eyesore, a profaning of sacred nature. Perhaps it's just an expression of the human animal upon place and only within its range. It is an expression or a mark that says, "I was here", "I love you" or "Fuck you"! As a landscape painter who sees place and people as mutually expressive, it is kind of like an infinity mirror reflecting place to person and person to place, a painting within a painting.
