Parts of a Whole.1
Creating new ways of looking at things is one of the rewarding aspects of making art. As I looked at the impressions of nature I am brought back to the reflection of how important the single is to making a whole. The impressionistic oil painting is a series of strokes intersecting to give a sense of integrated space, made of from solo elements. Surrounding each work are elements that bring you back to a closeness with the work. Nature has an economy of necessity where everything has importance, and like parts of a body, everything depends upon the parts to create a whole.
