Inner and Outer Landscape

monoprints at the Grocery

After Baton Rouge my press traveled with me back to Bozeman Montana. Between Summer and Fall Remote Studio I started making monoprints. Actually, whenever I can, I paint. A few weeks ago I took my monoprints to EJ Engler’s gallery space to look at the work all at one time.

Friends often ask what I am painting. How I choose colors. Are they landscapes….While my work is never directly representational (this to that), what I can recognize is that my work explores my inner landscape and the landscape I experience as I move through the world. Feeling and intuition and how color defines these is what guides my work.

The opportunity to look at my work all at one time allowed me to trace technique development and recognize colors that resonate within me, just as we can see in Mark Rothko’s work for instance.
