Handfuls of Clouds

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I usually share cloud paintings on a large scale; these smaller cloud paintings might ask for more attention, even though they take up less space.

 

Georgia O’Keeffe said, “...to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

 

Step closer to this work: breathe, look & look again. You may see familiar images of land and sky, but stopping to look can create a liturgy of looking:

 

see the art / look / breathe / look again

 

Truly looking demands a slower pace from viewers, not unlike the quiet, anticipant waiting of the Advent Season during this exhibit’s opening.
