Mixed media on canvas

 24" x 30"


I love the agricultural rhythms imposed on the organic landscape and I create shorthand symbols for that.    Some of the most interesting patterns and rhythms are found in the Sacramento Delta.   A favorite challenge of mine in painting is to juxtapose the flat, 2-dimensional surface of the canvas with the 3-dimensional reality of space, thus creating a tension between the two.   This painting exaggerates that aspect.   Here, each line can be seen as receding into space while at the same time respecting the flatness of the picture plane.
