This diverse collection of bone paintings includes, rams, bob cats, coyotes, birds, sea lions, beavers, bears, and a human replica.
"Bones are neither straight nor perfectly curved. Each is as unique as the life-force they once held. Catch the light just right and bones shimmer in pearlescent color. Painting skulls feels like a grapple with mortality and existential beauty. I hope these paintings communicate this duality. "
Artist Statment: Painting en Plein Air
"Painting en plein air makes me conscious of how fluid a landscape really is. Light and color change at a moment's notice, clouds and waves move constantly. Creating a landscape en plein air gives me the time to sit, listen, smell, observe, and respond in paint."
The Leaf paintings are with Sidestreet Arts Gallery. Please send inquiries directly to them.
