Let the beauty we love be what we do. ~Rumi ~

I am coming up on ten years of painting full-time so I am reflecting back on beginnings and influences.
My experience of living and visiting Crestone, Colorado has had an enormous impact on who I am as a painter.

These images are of monotypes and paintings done around 2004-2006. Scientist measured the decibel level in The San Luis Valley at 14 decibels. A library typically measures 40.

That level of quiet permeates every aspect of life there and shows up over and over again in my work.

All artists dream of a silence which they must enter, as some creatures return to the sea to spawn. (Iris Murdoch)
