Sunny Field Day (South Carollina Field Series)
Art Prints & Products Available The expanse of the sky, the expanse of the field, both vie for your attention. Therefore, I nearly broke compositional rules of never putting the horizon line dead center to depict this fight for attention. Sunny skies call you to pay attention, but that light playing on the colors of this South Carolina Field, makes its own call. The paintings title . . .do you recall having field days during your school days, wishing it would be a sunny one? Current memory mixing with the past.
Field as Color Field (South Carollina Field Series)

Gray Day (South Carollina Field Series)

Acrylic ink was used for emphasis of landscape elements.
Springs Arrival (South Carollina Field Series)

I am beginning to learn to turn to nature and trust it with choosing my color palette.
