Paintings Based on Nature
The vivacious, environmental "Lands Alive" painting series emits lively, ethereal "energyscapes." Their kinetic physicality emphasized the elements of nature. From my viewpoint as a painter, I equate energy with color. I strive for a delicate balance with each creation, leaving some areas complexly painted and others a mere suggestion. This yin and yang balance leaves my art open ended, as if the dialog between the painting and the viewer is not quite finished. This allows the onlookers to create their own ecological narrative.
