In 2001 we accompanied our missionary friend to his ministry fields in Mexico. Of the many photos taken of various areas, those of Mimbres, about 7,000 feet up in the Sierra Madres, presented images quite different from the dry, dusty, concrete block dwellings of border towns and desert villages. The mountains were cool, drizzly, forested, and green. These were the only log dwellings we saw on that trip.

Between Showers #1 is a view from the top of the hill;
Between Showers #2 is the
view from the other side of
the row of cabins. These
images were painted much
later in the studio from the
photos.

The remaining images are specific locations in the Texas Hill Country.

"ABSTRACTED" LANDSCAPES
"Stained Glass Forest" is a series of paintings in which the negative space is treated as positive space, thereby making the spaces between branches look like stained glass. There have so far been 12 paintings in this series. There will probably be more. The painting process is slow and sometimes tedious, because some of the spaces are very small.

Images 2 and 9 are missing from my files. Both are sold.
