This piece forces the viewer to look a simple creature in the eye and ask the question, Who are you? What's your story? Is he asking it back? and who are we not to believe that maybe this long-haired cow could be a warrior amongst his kind. Maybe he's even in love. As in most of my representational work, everything depicted that is part of creation and alive is highly textured. The life within is leaping off the canvas. Any man-made structure or item in treated more consistently with brushwork than with palette knife to draw emphasis to nature - its power, its energy. The use of palette knife over brush is intended to comment on both the resilience and spontaneity of 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?More About Artist
