Even though it’s not particularly safe… cougars, bears, wolves, coyotes… I love to jog at night when the dark is lifted only by moonlight and the occasional streetlight reflecting off the snow; when all sound is absorbed, and my world feels tucked in and solemnly tranquil and still.

It is fall in my mountains and I am surrounded by the gratuitous beauty of God’s pallet. I went down to my studio to capture the season, squeezed out my colors… When I stepped back hours later, I was stunned to see the beauty God had given me the honor to be a part of. I wandered around the house for the next few hours in awe.

4 feet of snow. The landscape camouflaged in winter’s white, more to come… I love it!

In any season, but especially in the fall, I feel transported into a fairy story when I jog this path. In the fall it is a riot of color. The nearly florescent yellow of the lichens clinging to the pine boughs clashes with the intense pink and aqua of the pine needle covered path below. Even in the autumn of life, God reigns with unexpected beauty!

Winter’s Sleep

Snow was falling outside; I was cold; not a cozy cold, a bone-chilled cold. The forest was in its depth of winter sleep. I felt the same.

An Evening in Autumn

I‘ve carried this image in my mind for months. Putting on my shoes for an evening jog I wanted to embrace God’s glory in the stark contrasts of fall.

The abstracts of power and survival are twined in purpose as water rushes over and around obstacles in its path… a strong metaphor for the journey of our lives. Life is a river of choices as we come against the boulders of decision. What will we choose? Will we go over or around, or be stuck in an eddy and drown? The eddys of life are where God, in His compassion and mercy, reaches down and grabs us from our death. He breathes His saving breath into our soul, lets us gain strength in the quite of a shallow pool, and then sets us off once again to bump over and around the boulders along our way.

Vine Maples in Bloom

Size: 60 in. × 48 in. (5 ft. x 4 ft.)
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas
Cost: $6,200 Purchase

The ubiquitous vine maple… in spring and summer, a common ‘filler’ of the forest’s under-story, green and leafy, unremarkable… but, in early August a faint reddish tinge appears on a few leaves… a hint, a harbinger, a metaphor of transformation from common to magnificent.

Turbulence

Size: 36 in. × 48 in. (3 ft. x 4 ft.)
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas
Cost: $4,200 Purchase

There is such abstract, passionate beauty in the sky. A clear sky, still and silent, with its perfect value scale of blue is certainly beautiful in its serenity, but I am partial to the tumultuous drama of turbulent skies. The battle is on between the elements; between good and evil. As dark and turbulent as life gets, God is always there, bringing His light into our darkness.
