"The Lake" - I finally had to paint it!
The lake finally called me.
I finished these first two 12"x24" acrylic abstract paintings. As you all must know by now I am obsessed by the sunsets over the beautiful lake. I am almost finished with me sabbatical, but before I'm finished I knew I had to paint a few more canvases and use the lake as inspiration.
These two paintings are perfect for displaying as a pair or separately. Email me for more information if you are interested in purchasing these.
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
