Artist’s statement:

I don’t know why, but this phase of my art is influenced by the moon. 

It is moonlight and magic, waxing and waning, ebbing and flowing, light and dark, and painted poetry.

It is spherical with no sides, just as there should be no sides on a round Earth.

It is either/or eclipsed by both land.

It is concepts in their simplest form without visual clutter and keeping the imperfect imprint of the hand of my humanity.

It is gravitational pull and the rise and fall of tranquil tides.

It is a serene and silent place with no air to carry waves of sound so communication must be seen, not heard.

It is the moon goddess Diana, guardian of wild beasts and fertile fields and protector of nature.

It is returning to primordial beginnings, purposeful play, making waves and the joy of creation.

It is that which I’ll leave behind when I am gone.
