If you have been following my blog for a year or so, you know my subject matter changes with the change in seasons.

During the winter months I visit the desert and am inspired by the sculptural beauty of desert plants.

However it takes time to pack, make the move, and set up a new studio area, which has not quite happened, the studio set up that is.

Seven Barrels

Acrylic on Canvas

Then I must wander through desert gardens, visually absorbing what grows, begin sketching and allow what I see to be processed by my creative spirit.  Only then do I take up the brushes and begin a new canvas, well the studio needs to be set up too.  

Check back to see what happens with this process.
