This series of paintings, Near Water, represents my affinity to the Northwest landscape. In these paintings, the depiction of water may not be the subject of every painting but its presence is always close by. Water is the element of change/direction that creates paths through the landscape. A trickster with many disguises, the dynamics of water is a constant challenge to render from the dancing currents of coastal water to the sculptural effects of a water course over rocky shores.
