This series, completed in the spring of 2015, was inspired by a wonderful Mother’s Day spent galavanting around the Finger Lakes with my family. My mother has a keen eye and strong appreciation for natures simple beauty and the day did not disappoint. The light dramatically changed with each passing rainstorm and the warmth of the air, the smell of the rain and the palette of springs new growth provided me with the energy and direction to complete these works.
