    This painting was created by my intuitive process that focuses on the various decisions made within each layer of media added. As every decision was made--colors, medias used, etc--it changed the course of the work. It is metaphorical for the human condition. Every door we open or close gives us a different journey or result. Every layer put down covers up or creates a whole new aesthetic or texture. I used a limited color palette and a lot of texture. This represents the truth of when we set our minds to a goal, that even with all the trials and tribulations, we can still achieve it if we are determined enough, hence the name Mind Over Matter.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
