I’m calling these small works “abstract landscapes” even though they’re not all landscapes and they are varying degrees of abstract. In any case, they are inspired by nature – by rocks, water, forests, mountains – and I aim to express joy, exuberance, the feeling of deeply breathing in fresh air. Life, vitality. Memories of camping, hiking, splashing in a stream. The things that drive me.
The three pieces below are on display through the end of 2016 at Wargo Nature Center in Lino Lakes, MN.
