A few seeds were planted last year about creating a series of paintings around "fake landscapes or fake nature" and ever since I have really fancied the idea. It was an interesting journey to see where those first seeds would take me.
While creating a number of these paintings, I listened to a wonderful album by Mark Kelso with Linda Worster called Grief & Grace. While at first it seemed a little odd to me that this music would feed my whimsical painting, but it must have been just what I needed at the time. Marking art is very much a part of my spiritual journey. There is a great sense of peace and calm now that wasn't there when I began this project. Thank you universe!
