My wave form paintings show bits of current in the rip bowl or short but powerful moments as waves react to each other. These real moments are captured by nuances of water droplets, light that glitters across the waves and flowing patterns as they react together in beautiful ways. These drawing are a representation of the way I feel when I stare out at the vast and powerful sea.
In the land I feel the wild place of my wilderness beginnings growing up in a small town, dirt roads and endless fields as my playground. Trees were my friend. When I paint they become the only other person on the planet with me. The saturated natural palette all around me — the greens and reds of leaves, the golds of grasses, the blues and grays of sky, the greens of the hillsides — deepened my sense of glorious isolation.
