Earth Bound - Time Honored
The work in this portfolio had a very interesting beginning-- an older gentleman from Germany purchased one of my painting. during the transaction he began to discuss his past and past in general. A wonderful conversation and confession about time passing and personal history was the beginning of a thought process for a new series of paintings.
Upon returning to my studio I began my next paining which told my personal story. The GREAT DIVIDE told how I came from a rural small farm and found myself looking at the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
Not all painting follow in chronological order, but rather as ideas of passing time presented themselves. Many new ideas were cultivated as I found an old photo album with all photos dated before 1947, but this was definitely for story telling and how time was honored on the land and told stories of imagined people, animals and things.
Enjoy the journey!
