backpacking in the Beartooth Mountains

       

 Nature offers a myriad of sensations and awakens a sense of discovery when one is “exploring” their surroundings. Colors and textures inspire a lyrical essence of story. Being absorbed in my surroundings elicits a sense of wonder. Robin’s egg blue sky, indigo nights, aqua seas, red rock canyons; vermilion, azure, sienna, and viridian patinas of lichen covered rocks - These visual and emotional experiences inform my paintings. Thus, the exterior landscape fuels my interior landscape (psyche, mind’s eye, soul).
