Beautiful and seductive, these landscapes contain, but only partially conceal, a visceral howl. My understanding of them fluctuates between seeing them as landscapes, then as abstractions, and finally again as landscapes....What I love most is the time it takes to truly absorb and appreciate their structure and beauty. For me, that is a slow and delightfully rewarding experience. - Bill Scott
