My watercolor paintings embody qualities that are increasingly important to me. They rely on relationships of form and space while employing color as a means of expression and communication. The Dunnfield Creek series, painted over a period of several years represents my interpretation of abstract shapes found in this particular landscape.
The natural world offers countless choices of creative elements. These universal images contain infinite varieties for mixing and reinterpreting, a springboard for the imagination. Exploring landscape presents challenging and engaging opportunities to create abstract relationships.
Growing up in the country, walking in the fields and woods allowed for a thorough immersion in the sights, sounds and smells of nature. The natural world is alive and wondrous. Being present in nature is a deeply spiritual experience that I share through painting. Painting is a meditation on nature akin to poetry.
