“The Sand Patterns series began after many visits to Brittany, France. While walking the beaches there I became fascinated with the movements and shadows of the patterns in the sand. I created paintings called The Bretagne Series with these images in mind. Out of that series, the Sand Pattern paintings grew into a new way of expressing my love for the American Southwest, where I have lived all my life. I wanted to explore on canvas the movement and changing shapes encountered in those desert landscapes, and especially in the arroyos, the rivers, and the riparian vegetation growing along the banks.”
