Piece description from the artist
This piece depicts a scene of rocks at Watmough Bay, Lopez Island off the Washington coast painted on two canvas panels. My paintings are a response to life’s influences through my travels and environment by making work that reflects the landscapes around me. Different materials and paint have always interested me and my curiosity has always impelled me not only to try new things but also to tackle new subject matter.
