These paintings began as I considered the relationship between tonal painting, such as the work of Vilham Hammershoi and Gorgio Morandi, and the subtle variations of white and gray as seen in a snowy landscape.  The work became a record of a specific time and place including experiences and memories, such as recent travel to Ireland and the winters of growing up on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
