"In the North Cascades, east of Rainy Pass, is Blue Lake, where we like to go to see the larches turn in October. It is a small, high lake in a deep bowl of snowy crags, with, somehow, a womanly feel to it."

"Most of these paintings have their begining in some event in real life. Something happens; a moment of insight or beauty. Flat space, or Medieval space helps us feel peaceful. For this reason I've long shied away from depicting real space. Lately I've been exploring a different kind of space, sometimes flat, yet open and expanding. Foreground, middleground and background are not connected in logical, real space ways; so time seems to expand. When time expands, we relax. At ease, and yet awake! The whole event takes place inside No Time."
