Morris Graves-a work in progress

Oil on canvas.
After visiting the Morris Graves estate, I was inspired by his great appreciation for the beauty in nature and art and his ability to bring the two together and share that vision beyond his own mortality. I learned about his life and began to think of reciprocating or continuing that thread, Naturally painting his portrait came to mind but also connecting with nature, bringing that awareness into painting and artwork, contributing to a culture that observes and promotes what really sustains and heals us. I am on a new path and have Morris Graves to thank.
