Near Santa Fe, New Mexico

Opulent October, oil on paper, 8 x 22

Some of my best thinking occurs during hikes in the woods when I am free to reflect and can simply "be." The mountains surrounding Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico are home to some of my favorite trails. Even on an overcast day, walks among the trees are uplifting. I never tire of the autumn colors that seem to float in every direction creating a visual chaos that I wade through in awe.

Along Lake Cuomo, Italy

Shapes and Shadows, oil on paper, 8.5" x 22"

While in the lakes region of Italy, I was fascinated by the contradictions in spacial perception. There was activity bursting from the pathways in each lakeside town. Walking tours revealed layer upon layer of culture behind the colorful facades. Yet from the lake, everything was hidden behind the shadows.
