81 is a kingpin of my paintings during 2016. It was at this time that I became obsessed with Interstate 81 that cuts through our beautiful, rural valley. It has something to do with the wide, expansive views of sky we are treated to while using this roadway, but also.....the beauty that is found here, through light bouncing off trucks, cars, and sky juxtaposed with the gritty reality of human existence.
81 was selected by the Exhibition Manager of The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC, for a juried show in Annapolis, Maryland, which was a great honor.
