Science & Art!
I am convinced of a connection between arts education and scientific discovery. Also, I love science. Also, science gives artists endless material to play with AND understanding of how things like light work, giving us more tools to play with. Here are some of my paintings inspired by Volvox, a very beautiful algae that lives in freshwater... like Flathead Lake and the Ninepipes Resevoir.
Our eyes easily pick out errors when it comes to natural things like water and clouds. I've been working on getting a more natural look.
