For me, a place exists not only visually and in terms of touch, but also in a realm that defies words and pictures.
My desire is to convey more than just a visual record of these regions where I have walked and explored. I want to relate my feeling and sense of place; the feeling of being out there on the land. Many of the paintings in this series are painted from an above ground perspective and there may be a slight feeling of vertigo that comes with the swirling loosely formed images. This northern land is big. I have just scratched the surface to expose some of it's raw power.
