Grand Lake in Winter                                                           Grand Lake in Summer

I experimented with tissue paper, paint, and Elmers glue on butcher paper; mountains, snow, brilliant colors from the sun appeared as I worked.  The resulting paint skins lifted from the butcher paper after the glue dried serve as stimuli for collage paintings in my Grand Lake series.  I see motion and contrasts and feel the excitement and mystery engendered by the mountains and Grand Lake.
