About the garden paintings
Working in a beautiful organic farm and garden, I painted a series of small, juicy oil paintings which documents the unfolding and ongoing changes in the garden throughout the year of 2010. Painting perceptually and in plein air, I made a metaphor of the motif before me. I often transposed color, much like a piece of music played in a different key than originally written. As I transposed, I looked for color equivalents with which to express the emotion of each experience.
