Communion with Köln

a painting born of free thought and communion with music. If you’re a fan of instrumental music, jazz especially, I urge you to listen to the Köln Concert by Keith Jarrett. This performance is composed of solo piano improvisations by Jarrett performed at Opera House in Cologne in 1975. I have no words for what I felt while listening to pt. I. Instead this little painting happened. Free painting, painting without an agenda, creating by listening and observing each stroke and color react with the last, calms my soul and reignites my love of Art in all of its forms. This sweet painting takes me to green fields abundant with budding Wildflowers. She’s delicate, hopeful and overflowing with life.

My work seeks to create safe places driven by love and grace. Split between representational work and abstract pieces, my paintings unpack relationships between humanness and our living natural world. My paintings are visual expressions of a poem, a song or a prayer — the colorful manifestation of still moments. Where I grew up has a particularly rich impact on the subject matter of my representational paintings. The lifestyle in my hometown is slower, the landscape seems to set still both time and people. In a day and age that feels like we are rushing through our days and forgetting to be present, I want to remind us of a place where "rush" doesn't exist - there is only the fields, the farm, and the creeks. My entire painting practice is about paying attention to small still moments. When I'm painting, i'm listening. How are the colors interacting? what are these soft whispers saying and why?
