Original piece is done on panel and is painted in a square format.
In this world there are many places to see and many ways of seeing. I paint fusions of landscapes from around the world not usually seen together. The separate landscapes are brought into a close relationship that unites them into a single expression that can’t be seen in the natural world but rather refers to the world of imagination or memory. I choose to paint these invented landscapes to reflect and remind myself of the places I’ve been, as well take my memories of these lands one step farther into the land of wistful fantasy. These combinations cause me to reflect on the sacredness of our natural places and the curiosity to see even more of this great wide world.
