DESCRIPTION: oil on canvas, framed

ARTIST STATEMENT: Sanctuaries: the fragrance of oil paint as I open the studio door, scent of pine upon entering the woods, crunch of pine needles under foot Scratching of my stipple brush on canvas, brilliance of cadmium yellow and orange leaves of a sugar maple in Fall Images come to life in paint then vanish with a stroke squirrels and birds playing in branches traveling through , a mushroom appears out of nowhere, fog settles in glazes of transparent pigment, cerulean blue a peek of sky over treetops, rich smell of earth in early Spring, muted colors of fallen leaves natural pigments of oxides and minerals, occasional thud of snow falling from a branch as I walk in the quiet snowfall, enveloped in the solitude of the studio on a holiday; my tube of cadmium red light hits the floor, taste of new snow keep paint away from mouth! Plants and fungi under surface waiting to burst out in rain and sun Imagery from my experience of senses in Nature close the circle Peacefulness and joy through all the senses.
