“Colors of the Southwest at Dawn and Dusk”
“Colors of the Southwest at Dawn and Dusk” is a post-painterly abstract paintography piece and a digital rendering for a textile design as created here in my studio here in Asheville, North Carolina. It is a "powerfully manipulated" creation originally a photography I took of cactus flowers.
This contemporary paintography art continues the thread of interest in exploring the emotional impact of times of day that inspires what I paint on canvas, or on paper, or in a digital way. The visual story emphasizes the fraught process of selection we—each of us-- face every day—that being the choice to look for beauty and possibility in each sunrise and sunset.

Theme and Symbolism: : In this paintography piece, the gentle and muted Earth-umbre-hues symbolize unity in diversity within a longing for connection ...a possible reminder applied to home and /or office décor of the old Tao Saying: “ The journey is the reward.”
Story and Method: : I create from what is around me. I translate sketches into canvas work then take a photo creating a mixed media digital rendering such as you see in this piece. I reach out for the story or metaphor to share in a narrative via texture, patterns, repetition that meet in the feeling of collage.
This piece creates its narrative via texture, patterns, repetition with references to "lyrical abstraction.” These elements meet to offer a feeling of coming together as the collection of concepts and forms take shape.
** This artwork is available in a variety of framed and unframed gallery-quality prints, home décor items such soft and durable duvet covers, fabric shower curtains, and throw pillows as well as greeting cards and weekender totes.
