2010, Oil on canvas, 28"w x 22"h

I see color as an essential, vibrant part of this world, so it is an important element of my art practice as I focus on nature. My landscape paintings display a variety of colors that bring the setting to life and also express feelings. The images I paint all have a personal connection: a location of significance, a meaningful memory, or an important feeling or emotion. For the series of works from which the painting comes, I focused on parts of the landscape that produce energy, such as twisting clouds on a stormy afternoon or a grassy field undulating in the wind. Bold color interaction and active brush strokes work together to heighten the mood of the paintings and illustrate the life that breathes in and out of each landscape.
