It seems that I paint in year series. I am inspired by my surroundings.This year I have painted the different light/colors that I see at different seasons from my tree house studio window overlooking the forest over the course of a year. I've wanted to capture the changes in the woods, the changes echoed in me. I dig, I scrape, add and subtract until I achieve what feels like a particular energy, the light emerging from within the forest surrounding me. I feel like I am borrowing the forest's radiance to put on my panel. I pull a color from my vision, from my palette and begun to emerge from the tangled woods around me.
