Some paintings begin with something seen, while others, like Spirit Flowers, begin in a dream. I do know what influenced the dream – a long, dark winter with (eight feet) of constantly falling snow, the yearning for spring and flowers, and a memory of watching fireflies in the meadow behind the house where I grew up. All of it went into the painting. Though it might seem like a departure from my usual pondscapes, it really isn’t. Like with the ponds, I’ve taken elements and patterns from nature and played with them, re-assembling the parts into a layered composition. I hope a bit of magic found its way in….enjoy! Detail below.
