Show Title:  Color Obsession

Artist Statement for the Show
“I prefer living in color.” — David Hockney

I am enthralled by nature.  I am fascinated by the variety of shapes and colors and the fact that nature is constantly changing.  My current work depicts transformations in the Southern garden and landscape.  What attracts me initially may be a beautiful flower, but a variety of factors including specific features, shapes, color variations or contrasts in lights and darks can influence my decision to paint a particular image.  Once engaged in the painting process, I pay as much attention to colors and shapes in the deepest space as I do to a brilliantly lit leaf or a translucent bloom.
