Backyard, Top Hat
This ongoing body of work is an active means of connecting with my immediate environment and of coping with a terrifying political and social landscape. My plein-air practice is a commitment to staying awake and celebrating my sentient existence while documenting our fleeting natural world. These paintings are a deep and humble return to nature and observational painting. In particular, they are an honoring of the specific color-key of the PNW palette. Paradise is here.
