The intention in my art-making is to bring joy, love, beauty, and inspiration to everyday life.
I am currently making new paintings that I think of as the Road and Paths series.
These new paintings begin from photographs I've taken in many places including Minnesota, Mammoth Lakes, Idyllwild, Namibia (Africa) and Here - on the golf course in La Quinta in the Southern California desert.
As these paintings emerge they ask the questions "where does the path lead?" "where do we go from here?"
The series began in the aftermath of both my parents sudden and unexpected deaths. They continue to evolve now in this current moment of worldwide pandemic.
But I think these are also the eternal questions we face as we move through life as humans.
My thoughts are centered around entering, moving forward, seeing a future horizon- both literally and figuratively-
and also witnessing the potential beauty, grace and love available in this moment.
