This series is based on the Gorge as a metaphor for life situations. It is a beautiful place to be wether inside or viewing from atop. It could also be scary. Each painting represents a "way" in which we might approach any perceived problem. These works point to outer help and inner strength.
I am not prone to always trusting my own inner dialogue. Egoic thoughts vs authenticity and truth. Awareness, intuition, faith, meditation, being present, accepting, letting go, compassion, love are just some ways to navigate tough situations to find resolution and move forward. These works are open for contemplation and/ or simply emotive resonance.
Pond series is a small collection of large paintings representing things I think about using pond life to express the various ideas.
