Safe Place

Watercolor

Purple fallen leaves and orange tree trunks conjure an unreality in this small grove. But even in the weirdness, a feeling of protection is conveyed as if you could rest on soft cool earth in the shelter of friendly trees.

Burning Bush

Watercolor

15 x 15 $300.00

"...behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.? ~ Exodus 3: 1-2
While fire is usually something to be feared, the burning bush has long been a staple of literary allusion, implying holiness and great things for the future. Although we sometimes feel we ourselves are in the fire, this image reminds us we will not be consumed, but will stand tall again like the mighty yellow tree.

Field of Dreams

Watercolor

20 x 15 $550.00

In dreams proportions and sequences are irrationally ordered. On the bottom of this painting, the foreground landscape is detailed in crisp focus, while the middle ground plants are tiny and show proportional perspective. However when the background flowers appear out of focus, as they would be in real life, they are gigantic, of tree-like magnitude. Suddenly the perfectly proportioned field takes on irrational proportions. It is not scary however; the dreamlike quality is one of playful, peaceful slumber in soft pastels, achieved through wet on wet puddling technique.
