I admire the people who have told me their reactions to this series of abstract paintings. Some have cried or realized buried emotions or desires that did not know after reading the titles and looking at the movement in the work. The premise of these painting is to be a mirror of your own imagination of this viewpoint. Some views are an example of seeing how your own imagination relates toward the situation. That is why there are free formed shapes put in an abstract way so that logic takes the back seat.
Matisse was painting for a client who wanted to watch him paint. The painter did some beautiful line
paintings in a few moments. When the buyer saw that it had only taken him such a short time to paint his piece he was insulted and refused to pay
a large sum for what took minutes. Matisse replied, no it has taken me a lifetime to learn how to paint in a few brief movements. Satisfied the buyer left with
the wonderful painting.
11.11 series have this special number which represents radiance and the new shift of consciousness that is growing. A few pilot friends of mine from the Navy thought they
looked like aerial views from above but really they are anything that moves you.
It is hard to separate the emotions I feel from life and landscapes so I translate that feeling into painting. Art is stronger than me and makes me do its bidding.
Painting is a visual diary. So come and see these new landscapes with me.

The most humble story was about the woman who saw her breast cancer in one of the pieces.

Be inside a blade of grass with me.
NH 16 is the main
route from the Seacoast, north to the Lake Region and the White Mountains.
Conway New Hampshire has a proud and interesting
history. The region was once home to the Pequawket Indians, an Algonquian
Abenaki tribe which summered here and spent winters at St. Francis, Quebec.
Along the Saco River they fished, hunted or farmed, and lived in wigwams
sheltered within stockades. In 1642, explorer Darby Field of Exeter paddled up
the Saco in a canoe, and would report seeing “Pequawket,” an Indian
community stretching from present-day Conway to Fryeburg, Maine. But when
Europeans settled here in 1764, the Pequawket tribe had dwindled from disease,
probably smallpox brought from abroad.
Color has taken possession of me with the landscape floating around in front of me.
