This painting, Guardian Angel, describes an encounter of a
flower-shape spirit and a bird swooping down and ready to land.
There is an egg-shaped gap in the woods , woods that are streaked with a glowing light,
and in that gap a figure lays below on a yellow blanket that really is a kind of nest.
My abstract paintings reveal suggestions of figures, animals and plant-life
in different interactions in the woods. Where one can see a bird another may see a fountain,
or they can be read as only shapes and movements. I am interested in emotional encounter and in
place, where a feeling of hope or urgency resides. As I paint there is a sense that I have
been there before, and that I am catching up to the hidden memories.
