Greetings in 2017! Already the second month in and the Nature Works Show is fast approaching. Thank you for coming to my studio log. The paintings for this year's show are varied. Obviously, there are pieces from my beloved state of New Mexico and the grandeur that is so apparent here. There are several cloud paintings that were inspired by the monsoons near my home just outside of Santa Fe. Always full of power, they produce voluminous clouds thousands of feet up into the sky. There are also paintings from a different state. During a journey to the Tall Grass Prairie in Northern Oklahoma I saw the incredible expanses of a different context, that of rolling fields of grasses and wildflowers. Or, though the back woods, a much different world: the trees. The oaks, the dogwoods, the ash and willow trees, bordering the fields and farmlands, casting their shadows,. I feature several pieces showing these scenes.
My work is always an exercise in capturing the essence of how I experience the land and all it's parts. Every painting is a kind of portal, an opening and an invitation to travel in and thru my experience. Land is spirit. Alive. Healing. Beautiful. All encompassing.
If you can make it, please come to the show.
