The 'Immortal Landscape' Series reminds us to pull in close with our natural environment. Female figures embody Mother Nature in harmony with the Earth and mankind. Our landscapes are not permanent or to be taken for granted. They require our nurturing protection.
The basic process for works in this series begins with a graphite drawing of a figure or a face. To this is added transparent watercolor backgrounds and detail work with graphite and color pencils. Applying stenciled patterns with rollers and lace adds interest and an abstract dimension. The rich texture of the trees, as with the Splintered Wisdom Series, are created with collaged bits of images of bark and litter that I clean up off of scenic highways. This serves as a gentle reminder that if we do not stop trashing the planet, trees and wildlife will not grow from our garbage in the future.
This series synthesizes many of my favorite techniques and applications I have picked up as an Artist from drawing realism to lose watercolor painting and beyond.
These works are mounted on wood panels and finished with two coats of archival satin varnish. This natural, yet contemporary presentation requires no glass or framing. All works are Ready-to-Hang.
