Artist Statement

In 2013, a relative commissioned a painting from me to be a semi-abstract of ripe canola pods. This piece spawned a series of 4 semi-abstract paintings – Canola Pods I, II, III, and IV. This painting is the first in the series. I intended to use the blues as shadowing in a composition that was in shades of brown, but liked the blues so much by themselves that I decided to leave them, and start another painting solely in browns.
