Lately, my work has transformed into a study of the abstract and impressionistic environment. So many landscapes throughout our lives pass in a blur. For most, our daily interaction with nature is from some sort of transportation, passing us in blocks of colors, textures, and lines; leaving us with impressions, not details. To further the conversation of what these landscapes mean to us, why they should be preserved, I have chosen to try shifting the consciousness by visually shifting the landscapes. My hope is that by creating these abstract, impressionistic images, it brings the viewer to a standstill where, as they contemplate the image, they can focus on the subject more fully.
