The works in this exhibit, Landscapes, were inspired by walks in my neighborhood, the moon at night, the morning sky and the beach. Memories of these places surface in my paintings and evoke the feelings I had in a moment of time.

The first piece I made of these works," Out of This World" is a collage. The oval shapes and curves, the bright oranges and blues remind me of the ocean and the billowing clouds of summer. The scale of this piece is the largest collage I have ever made. This challenge led me to try other new materials. I used Flashe paint for the first time and the experience led to the body of work seen here. In the painting titled "Rain", I used acrylic as well as Flashe paint. The freshness of the color and its flat quality kept me painting and expressing my reflections while trying to understand this new material and its potential.

"Soft Clouds" is the only oil painting in this exhibit. I found a new softness with color and shape as a result of the time spent in new places and new materials in the studio.
