Collection three is about painting, and a reverence for this planet. Observing some natural object and lovingly recording it over days and weeks is in service to the earth as muse. Making this work is a meditation on the details of the place we inhabit. Our hope: to make nature inspired art for collecting and adding to a thicket in your home. Looking at work derived from nature helps provide the memory, reverence, and meditation we seek when we are outdoors. To marvel at the differences in species as the observer, to see the similarities of branches to veins, to know we are of this place.
