Into the Other Land Series
The gestation period for this series was 10 years. Many of these paintings are one color (monochromatic) to pull the viewer into the image...to feel immersed. This is what I am trying to say in my oil painting, to allow myself to be immersed and therefore nurtured in nature. I also invite you to participate in the interpretation of the story.
These works first rely on outward reference, but then the paint takes control and the mysteries emerge. Rarely do I use brushes, mostly I just use my fingers and hands.
