    Description

    "And I heard the sound of the wings..."
    I have begun a new series I am very excited about. The idea has been simmering for a while now, but I had to find the right pair of wings. Once the wings were discovered I hired a model and scheduled the photo session.
    Working on this series has already inspired me - I am hearing the sound of the wings and have been given the invitation to soar!

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
