Portfolio > Cottage Bonsai

My current series of paintings, Cottage Bonsai tells a love story of place and season. Inspired by summer stays in a rustic generational home on an island in Casco Bay, Maine, I observe and catalogue the imagery of this specific place ultimately narrowing my focus to capture hypnotic vistas on a reduced scale. Like the art of bonsai, the act of reduction compresses the magical qualities of space and time, poetry and paradox.
