This series of paintings was inspired by the ever-changing skies over our heads. Clouds dance across the sky, on westerly winds, catching light in so many magical ways before releasing it to the ground below. I can spend hours watching the clouds rise up over the ridge of the glen I call home. I even imagine that I am learning to read what the different clouds portend — just a few light showers or a more serious drenching. If the ever changing clouds are my daily entertainment, then the golden hour at the end of the day is the grand finale. No matter the compass direction where I cast my gaze, there is magnificence. It often feels like nature is throwing everything she’s got at us — she’s giving us drama, she’s giving us color, she’s giving us “the works”.
My work is inspired by nature. I often think the greatest works of art are around us every day. I look to capture those moments at a particular place and at a particular time, when I am struck by the rhythm of the land, the dance of the light in the clouds or the thoughts of some sentient being I find loudly staring back. These are the moments when our boundaries dissolve and we are aware that we are as infinite as the universe.
