Would you like to join me on a journey to the desert? This past spring we had seemingly endless rain here in North Vancouver. The wet, dark days led me to start reflecting back on a nice, dry, hot trip to Joshua Tree National Park. I had been saving some photos from the Hidden Valley Trail to explore with my paints. The Metamorphic Collection is the result of that exploration which will be released Oct 21st on Artwrk.ca
These paintings represent the beauty and abstract quality of the other-worldly landscape in the desert. The vast, exposed spaces, and the way the land has been sculpted with rugged rock formations and boulders over time lends itself well to both landscape and abstract pieces. It’s a hostile environment for animals and vegetation, but somehow everything looks smoothed over. The warm and inviting palette is meant to remind you of that glorious feeling of the sun shining on your (SPF covered) face. Those on my subscriber list will receive the first access to purchase this collection. I can't wait to share the Metamorphic Collection with you.
