Paradise Road Galleries

Following the death of my husband painting gave me a new focus. it allowed me to concentrate and contemplate on,light and shade and how natural light and reflection can alter our perception of the simplest forms, Nature has always been a constant source of wonder. The tsunami, revealed to me, another aspect of nature that i had not encountered before. The devastating and destructive force of nature, not the gradual erosion of rocks on the coast line but a virtual destruction of man made world. Is it, ask because of our insensitivity to nature? The series of paintings reflecting cracks are depiction of both natural cracks and those created by man and my strong belief that man will learn to revere and respect nature rather than to engage in a collision course.
