“This painting ‘Synchronicity 1’ (part of a series) was inspired by nature and the warm thought that all things work together. I always find some sort of bounty or harvest to focus on when I spend time outdoors. The change and flow that each season brings spills out of me in color, shapes, and marks. A random breeze, or ray of light, my choice of moments to capture life… it all manifests in a painting where the inner and outer worlds unite.”
“Autumn returns gently on the southern part of Vancouver Island. Each year seasonal rains refill Bilston Creek remaking the Sitting Lady waterfalls. The local big leaf Maples turn brilliant yellow adding drama to the waterscape. This artwork captures my pleasure of visiting this spiritual site.”
“I love Colorado in the fall. It is a beautiful time of the year with the air so crisp and sun so bright. The aspen are aglow with colors of autumn. It is magical to drive or walk thru a grove of aspen. I am so thankful to be able to paint aspen and try and capture their light and color.”
