Sun Spots is part of the body of paintings that I began in 2000 that were made of simple landscape and architectural under-paintings. After six years both structures have moved from the surface to the background to the surface again in intersecting and rippling layers and patterns. It still adds up to landscape and interiors but the surface of the paining has exploded into time and space. Every painting talks about some ancient thing that is as old as ground we walk on and connects us all in a shared existence.
