“Flat fields produce mediocre grapes, but rolling hills produce the greatest grapes. Why? Because the vines must struggle for survival.”
Billy Cannon

This series of paintings stems from the idea that struggle produces greatness. Just as the rolling hills cause grape vines to struggle into greatness, so do the struggles we all face in life.

"Wander the Fields" transposes the earthy colors of the artist's rural surroundings into an abstract landscape piece of art. This painting began with layers of avocado ink, walnut ink, and dandelion ink. Mark making, pastels and thread form the final layers.
