I began placing still life objects on a mirror a few years ago. The idea came to me in a dream after pondering how to combine tradition with the unexpected. When people see my work they look and look, tilt their heads and look some more trying to understand what they are seeing enjoying the hypnotizing confusion. I love the concept of reflections, double images, double meanings. Often our lives play out with multiple viewpoints, our experiences multidimensional. What is? What could be? Who we are. How others see us. Nature holds similar wonder. Patterns of the natural world remind us that the beauty of the universe can be found in one leaf. I thoughtfully pick objects from personal story. My father's family were silversmiths, my mother's, farmers, dating back to 1722. The pairing of silver with fruit or flowers is inspired by this ancestry. I paint what I love in ways that surprise fans of realism, surrealism and abstraction. This is a series of 12 masterworks, along with several small studies and experimental flipped images as giclees.
