Rock outcroppings reveal the foundation of this land. They announce the strong elements that create stability in the planet. There emanates from this structure a quiet peacefulness as it with stands all that nature brings day after day. Only mankind destroys it willfully to create ever more roads, strip malls, and suburbs.
My paintings are offered as a testament to the rugged beauty we can appreciate before “progress” destroys it. As I am painting, I imagine what a varied history these structures have endured in their hushed stillness.
I offer these paintings with the hope that the viewer will also appreciate these noble stone formations and discover with me the poetry they contain.
