I have always been interested in motion and transformations of things especially those in nature. While driving by a field on a country road I was wondering what it would be like to represent that field going from relative stillness to as fast as I was driving in my car. I thought it would be nice for the viewer to see this transformation in one frame, a landscape that accelerates by being represented in different techniques.
The painting once finished, seems to always allow myself and other viewers to see something new in it each time we look upon it. I never quite replicate what is in my minds eye but I am always a student of the process of creating. So it is that process that teaches me the sometimes subtle and sometimes unexpected transformations from idea to oil on canvas.
