I have lived in the Wimberley area of the Texas
hill country for the past two years. The peaceful beauty of this valley and
surrounding areas have wonderfully influenced my work and the paintings in this
exhibition are the result of living in this quiet and simple environment. It's
not surprising that the meditative nature of my work would open my eyes to this
place and that this place is best perceived with the same quiet observation.
While living here the land has progressed from being extremely parched during
an exceptional drought to being inundated with heavy rains over a period of
many months. The colors have been rich and deep. Lushness pervades. Lucky me.
