New Painting Included in Nature's Patterns Exhibition at PACE Center, Parker, CO

NaturesPatterns Invite

I'm happy to announce that one of my newest paintings, "Protected," has been accepted to the Nature's Patterns Art Exhibition at the PACE Center in Parker, CO.

"Protected" is part of a new series of large still life paintings that focus on the beautiful intricate patterns found in natural objects.  Pine cones hold the seeds of the evergreen tree, and protect them until they fall to the forest floor.  The bract scales of a pine cone grow in a Fibonacci spiral and are a fascinating example of one of nature's patterns.

I'm honored that the juror of Nature's Patterns loved the painting and included it in the show at the PACE Center.
