This piece and 15 other paintings were listed on my site this morning and several have already found collectors. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I wish I had dozens more to make available to you, but I’ve come to accept the pace of this year and I’m really proud of each painting as a lot of time, thought, and heart went into each piece.
I wanted to share what i wrote about this work as it’s an exercise to put a series of paintings into words... .
This work is about the memory and experience of being in a place. If you could hold a moment spent in nature, when every physical sense is stimulated, what would it look like when revisiting that landscape in your mind? These paintings are a translation of that experience. They are a blending of memories with accents of texture and exaggerated color, suggesting the same layers and detail found outside.
I've been aiming to find some sort of meeting point between the experience of being in nature and viewing my work. I was thinking how something simple such as 15 minute hike in the woods can be so powerful. It can make you pause to appreciate the simple and complex and encourage you to look closer... so it's my goal to bring that perspective to the viewer.
You can view the collection through the link in my profile. I whould love to hear your thoughts.xo
