I've always thought that reclining bodies are similar to rolling hills. This new series explores our connection to nature. If we acknowledge that connection, perhaps we can stop destroying the earth and her inhabitants.
My final piece for the Heroines + Warriors + Goddesses show at Link & Pin Gallery in Austin, Texas, September 1-30. (Reception is Sat, 9/8, 7-9 pm)
This one is close to home. Jennifer is an example that talent and discipline do pay off. I’ve embraced her limited palette (seen at the top of the painting), although our colors end up looking pretty different. When she told me she paints colors she would like to eat, this concept popped in my head. I hope this speaks to her playful side.
