This painting was built on a fascination I developed with “what lies beyond the tree line” while skiing last season.

It can look like air, water, earth —

And even fire —

At different times and from different angles.

While painting this I felt called to pick up the red and place a bold heart shape on the mountain rim.  From there, points of fire sprung up —

Hearts gathering to kneel at the base the great Heart.  It seemed right to make the cloud cover live in between the tree line and the ridge —

And then the sun, like breath, fills and lights both what is seen —

And unseen.

My art flows from the patterns & paths of my lived experience which ⏤ like yours ⏤ are at once deeply personal and entirely universal.
