53rd National Show Catalog, "No Place Like Home"


12” x 24” — Pastel $1,400

Evening Virga was inspired by a sunset witnessed along the foothills of the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico. The image represents a fleeting moment in an ever-changing sky. While painting, I often imagine the miles of dust and mist that reflect the dance of light; adding color and vibrance to the experience. I relish the abstract shapes and colors unique to the sky and that moment. To enhance the glow, I darken the clouds and sky. The layer of clouds closest to the sun are lost in definition to the sun’s glow. When I observe the quiet power found in the sky, I am in awe of the eternal processes of our natural world.
