Announcing my first RI art show.

The Journey

AS220 - Main Gallery, 115 Empire Street, Providence RI
July 7 - July 25, 2015
Reception: Saturday July 11 5 - 7 p.m.

When I returned to New England in 2012 after 15 years in Seattle, I realized how much I had missed the dunes near the Atlantic coast.   This series began as a rediscovery of that landscape.   In painting the dune path I am painting the journey.  We know the ocean is over the crest yet it remains hidden as we climb the hot sands.  It is a landscape with an ever-changing personality: its calm and dramatic nature. A character of extremes, it can feel isolating and yet that space is full of emotion, of ideas and of color.

This journey is a quest for home.  Home - the place where we are seen.  The place where we are heard.  The place where we can just be.
