Reflections and Light. Water and Trees. Great, but I am certainly not a landscape painter though once in a while it’s a nice challenge. Needless to say, STICKS was inspired by Ansel Adams’ work. I just had to have those oversized birch trees in my living room. BALINESE MIRROR WORLD turned into a pretty tedious challenge as I had to get all those ‘arbitrary’ water shades right if I didn’t want to risk ruining the overall effect. I painted HALF DOME and EL CAPITAN almost back to back. The latter was based on a stunning photograph by Stefan Heck, a great photographer, and friend and former colleague of my husband.
