Being in Nature series was inspired during the pandemic when we all spent a lot of time out in nature – taking walks, long hikes, and generally meeting in outside venues with others. Through each season, there were different things to appreciate while being in nature – the wind blowing through the grasses and trees in summer, the awakening of spring, the colors of fall, the starkness of winter. Through these abstract paintings, I have tried to capture my feelings and impressions of these times.

My process with these paintings is the same as the process used for Connections.
