As I reflect on place and how my surroundings impact my feelings and thoughts, landscape becomes an allegory for psyche and emotion. Although I am a city dweller, my soul is most stirred in lands that seem beyond the control of humans.

 

“Under the Sun” references a wild November day when I was walking through a hibernating prairie. Sunlight filtered through incessantly evolving clouds, creating theatrical shadows. Of that day, I most vividly remember the interplay of light and wind. It is this fleeting world that nourishes my imagination and dreams.
