September Woods, One

"September Woods, One"   14" x 18"  Oil on Canvas

With each painting of my woods, some new level of belonging to them emerges and weaves itself into all that I am.  These are not just scenes nor are they just paintings to be admired.  Rather each of these is a search for finding my oneness with every ounce of sap that moves through these trees, with every bug that's busying itself among them, with every leaf that is undergoing its metamorphosis, getting ready to change its color and then drop to the ground.

"August Woods, Two"   8" x 10"   Oil on Canvas Board
I have spent my summer absorbing the light within the woods where I live. Finally, I am doing a series of paintings that studies the power of light's story told within the green of the foliage, how it moves and changes every moment, and how mirrors the very life of our universe.  This is the second painting of the series.
