Portfolio > Missions and Flowers Series

One of my first forays into publicly showing my art was making 20 "Missions and Flowers" paintings. Working in one unifying theme is the way I like to work and this one perfectly married my love of old buildings with a curiosity about spirituality and faith. I had a desire to make a connection with my customers and these images, which play an important part in people's lives, made that happen. When presenting the work when I could see a spark of recognition in a viewer's eyes I would ask them to tell me their stories. This act of remembering adds another layer to a painting for the viewer and for myself.
