Statement: “These pieces are a part of my ongoing Color Studies Series. Long known as a colorist, in this group of paintings I explore the ability of color to describe location, time, and an emotional response to specific places. Living in Tucson, traveling extensively, and working in landscape architecture has inspired my interest in the sometimes powerful, sometimes subtle, nuances of local color in the Sonoran Desert and the world beyond. Color Series: Desert Rain expresses the power and intensity of our summer desert rains. It captures the impact of these storms racing across the desert, lightening flashing, and the subtle smell of returning moisture in the desert air.”
