“From Above” Series
I have lived most of my life in the foothills of Colorado surrounded by long views, which may have inspired these works. I was playing with the way the paint reacted on YUPO when I started seeing field patterns and thought how quiet and peaceful it must be to look down from above ad see the big picture. That was the inspiration for the initial painting FROM ABOVE #1. From there, the series just took off.
I honestly can’t explain or name my “From Above” series of paintings more specifically. It is my hope that the viewer will have a personal reaction to the work, just as I react as the my paint goes down.
