There's a lot to be said for contentment. Yet when it comes to my art I am never content. As soon as I figure something out, instead of being satisfied, I am out looking for the next puzzle to solve. And I can't seem to let go of this theme of abstracted landscape, nor do I want to. This puzzle is about the challenge of the elements of composition and color from an intuitive inner landscape that is influenced by the landscape of my home in these mountains.
And lately that landscape responds to the experience of the season's change from summer to autumn with its soft, barely noticeable shift in light and the color of the grasses and trees as they warm just before that final autumn burst.
It's a landscape of my heart. A part of my nature as much as the nature in which I reside. So I continue to work this puzzle of translating these land forms and the natural elements into a mood, a reflection of the seasonal shifts with my response through shape and color.
