This group of work is called 'Abstractions in Nature' taken in Joshua Tree National Park. In this series I was trying to 'see' the park in a more intimate and abstract manner. I would simply pick an area and meander, focusing on rocks, plants, pieces of wood. On my computer, I would alter the original digital photo to create a more painterly or abstract image, which would engender a richer story than the original photo document. I will be at the gallery June 5 and 6 from 10 to 3 each day.
