As light washes over the landscape at various times of the day, and in different seasons of the year, it emphasizes the textures and patterns of nature. It affords an opportunity to continue my exploration of color, a dominant theme in my work. I am drawn to drama in the extremes, the beginning and the end of the day, when horizontal shards of light rake across and illuminate the vertical stands of trees and shafts of weeds and grasses. The rendering of these patterns and textures results in a tapestry of color.
