As I traveled across the southwestern states between home and Texas, I was inspired by the landscapes of desert and mountains, and could not wait to get back home and paint. The colors and patterns of the indigenous peoples’ art was beautiful and gave my creative self a deeper connection to my surroundings. I could see how the artists used the fabric of Mother Nature for inspiration. I too was inspired.
I am enjoying the use of bold shapes and colors to define the essence of the scene, and the connections between the images. Do the shapes draw your eyes in? Do the colors reveal something about themselves? Do they reveal something about you? Do they evoke emotion?
A few years ago, my sister and I traveled through some National And State Parks. One of those parks was called Coral Dunes. We traveled several hours to go there, even crossing state lines. It wasn’t a very large park in comparison to others, but i loved the crisp clean dunes of coral sands as they rolled across the landscape. Sharing this experience with my sister made it extra special and one I will never forget.
This was my inspiration.

In the middle of 29 Faces, I got very ill and this project was very delayed. I finished during the first week of March.
