I carried her picture around with me, drawing her, tracing her and wondering about her. What lines she carries in her face! And then one night I “got it” and put her face in this mountain. I think she belongs there.

This old farm was tucked into the edge of the forest on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state. Decades of resting in the Rain Forest have given the buildings a sense of being in the right place.

My sister took a picture of this wonderful house while she was visiting Kansas. I had a wonderful time doing the storm clouds and adding the picket fence.

Through a whole series of events i Started thinking about the Appalachian Mountains and the women who played music. The background mountains are painted using a gel to give them some substance and then i started thinking about the people i wanted in these paintings and found this wonderful picture who i hope will resemble when the years permit.

Although i have never been to the Appalachian Mountains, my family did live there for generations. I thought it would be fun to add a picture of my ancestors to this cabin and pretend that they created music.
