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: Springtime, Palo Verde is an intimate piece, capturing the joyful brilliance of Palo Verde trees as the weather turns warm. The color is an almost unreal chartreuse green that illuminates the desert during this time of year.”
