Artist Statement
“River Crossing” is my most recent and prolific series of paintings to date. Numbering well over two hundred works and ranging in sizes from 4×4 to 20×30, they are all rendered completely in transparent watercolor. Each piece highlights my fascination with contrasts, natural textures, depth, volume and light. They reflect my very deep seated need to control the medium juxtaposed against my desire to allow each piece to develop organically; a dichotomy that holds true in my life as well.

“River Crossing” is inspired by an unlikely encounter with my higher power while on a motorcycle trip through the deep south. The series speaks to the mortality of the human condition and casts a fantasy apparition. It was first realized as a poem and later as these iconic southern images of cotton.
