New work and more coming soon…

The inspiration for my new work began during our trip to New Mexico this last June. Since we’ve run out of state highpoints to climb (except for one), we’ve been working on the county highpoints of Arizona and New Mexico. My new work isn’t exactly inspired by the mountains we climbed, but standing on top of a mountain always reminds me of what matters most: love and beauty.

I painted the first two works, Transformation I and II, along the Rio Honda after climbing Wheeler Peak. They’re not really part of this new work, but they mark a shift and a new grounding for me …and from there, the inspiration took off; fueled by the words: “middle, joy, breath, sky, open, neutrality, love, mountain, body, sound, grass, wind, beauty”.

I’ve added these new works to my website and my store. And there’s more coming soon. I’ve been working on some new paintings on paper this last week, and building more stretcher frames for canvas paintings.
