I just love the colors of this new 20"x20" multi-media wood canvas! This canvas reminds me to have some fun!
Trees are a favorite of mine, whether its just one tree or a whole group such as this.
Do you notice the whimsical one in the middle of this canvas? It almost as though it's trying to tell us a life story. That tree is different, fun, and brighter. It's as though it's branches are laughing and not missing out on the fun life has to offer.
I know we have to take life seriously and treasure it, but sometimes we just have to take those moments to let go, laugh and enjoy what we have.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
