I am fascinated by the relationships that exist between every element in nature. It seems that we are constantly discovering greater depths to which everything is integrated. There is a natural intelligence to the way the universe unfolds, evolves and collapses. I wish to honor that wisdom which is inherent to everything.
Water captures my attention with it’s transformative qualities that mesmerize me. Clusters of water molecules fall from the sky to nourish the plants and animals. Greater accumulations of water become streams and rivers that flow around obstacles and carving their marks into the land in the search to unite with the sea . Each molecule will eventually evaporate and return to the sky to begin a new cycle.
Water is so simple, beautiful and powerful. The challenge is to translate the constant flux of life into paint. This process requires me to remain in the present moment. I must relinquish my expectations and judgments to discover the truth and essence of my subject.
