About a year ago, while floating down a local river, I became infatuated with the exposed tree roots along the river bank. This became the subject of inspiration for a recent series of paintings. I refer to them as “Rootscapes”. It was a labor of love and exploration for myself as an artist. Being such a different subject from what I usually paint I was able to explore with out my own artist expectations.
By February 09 I had completed 17 paintings for a solo show titled “The Root Cause”. My rootscapes were chosen by the Mid Missouri Fine Art Society for their annual solo artist exhibit in their gallery in Washington, Missouri.
