Abstract: From the beginning my painting has been involved with natural forms -- trees, fields, mountains. For several years I have been interested in placing the paintings in nature, out of doors, where I painted most often. It seemed to me that they would be much more expressive of my real purpose in a natural environment than in a flatly lit interior. When I began to place the painting out of doors, I realized that bent shapes which angled or rolled would be much richer than flat paintings, would better reflect light and shadow and movement in nature (both literally and artistically).
