Sugar Coated Mountain Tops in Los Angeles

My dog woke me up early yesterday morning wanting to go out. I was sad because it was the first time I've been able to sleep for any length without waking up from a coughing fit since I caught this cold a week ago. However I forgave him when I opened the door to see that the snow level was low enough to dust the tops of the nearby mountains.


After I took the pictures I went back to bed for another blissful 6 hours of rest.

Artist Statement

I paint landscapes that explore margins of atmosphere and form and the interplay between imaginary and real places.

Like the point between dream and waking, subtle edges of earth and water, tree and sky, dissolve and reappear, caught at that moment when boundaries are undetermined and reality is malleable.

Beginning with underpainting, I modulate the intensity of light that spreads from the center of the canvas. Lines and shapes are defined and then partially obscured. Layer is painted over layer, resulting in unexpected gradations and tones. Elusive shapes are muted by fog or shadow.
Imagination’s alchemy transforms the recognizable into delicately nuanced layers of color and tone, to gently invoke mystery, sensation, and mood.
