I call this piece Walking Through Trees as that is the story it implies. How often have you walked through trees and felt as much as seen the trees. I've often encountered this very scene when hiking on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona. The colors blend to make a collage that tells the story. We never truly see just one color but rather a composite of many colors, even when Walking Through Trees.
I created this piece upon returning from one of the Mogollon Rim hikes. The lingering of that day in the fall was my inspiration. I do hope you will enjoy it.
Thank you for viewing my profile. It was in San Francisco when I was first introduced to photography in my early twenties. I was fortunate to have some great mentors and teachers during those years. As I've grown so has my vision. Since 2003, when I was first introduced to painting by my mentor Suzie Kahlil, I have worked with paintings in oil, acrylic, resins and other mixed media. Here is a brief art statement which I hope will present an idea of the spirit of my work. My Artist Statement talks about the collision of colors and how life is often defined by the edges and meeting of colors. Life also is found at the edges between illness and health, sadness and joy, where it creates bravery and strength and love. As an artist in this small way with my work I hope to add to this unfolding drama with a celebration of the meeting of the human body and art. I hope you enjoy this visit with me. Please feel free to contact me with comments or questions.
