These landscape pieces are my in between moments. Walking the barrens you can be overwhelmed by the expanse of it all and the uniqueness one sees in each step you take. A painting of individual brush strokes, not an expanse of colour necessarily. I love the wide open barrens, especially in the fall of the year. They diminish me and expand my wonder. Less talk more listening.
