Memory Series

I seem to be on to something here with this new series of collages. I am calling them the "The Memory Series" since that is what they are.

These are all done from my memories of living in a rural environment. It has been over twenty years since I last lived there and yet the visual memories are still with me. When I lived there I painted the countryside all the time but in a very different manner. More detailed. These are much more streamlined.

I am enjoying this series very much as painful as it is. I do my best work when I am not too happy.

These pieces are so evocative and now I'm noticing the detail of the clouds which I hadn't noticed in your thumbnail on fb. I'd better start zooming in on these scenes you've been treating us to.

I've really enjoyed looking at your work! I especially respond emotionally to the sense of crisp, clean handling of your shapes and simple, yet intriguing elements.

Painful? Oh, yes, I hear you there. But, I'm looking forward to more of your work as I wish you less discomfort!
