In celebration of Earth Day 2010 which falls on Thursday April 22 I offer a few paintings from a recent series. I do not consider them landscapes per say. I sometimes call them dreamscapes. They do not depict a place, not a dream nor a memory. These paintings are informed by an emotional memory, dream like in it's awareness of the sky & earth that envelope us. They speak of a primal understanding of landscape & this home we call earth. I hope that this week everyone will take the time to appreciate the ephemeral beauty of our natural landscape & in doing so make a commitment to protect it.
