The Pure Land Series is an extension and development of my Rising Sun Series, using a similar palette of fantastical colors combined with gold leaf to create vibrant, life-filled images. The Rising Sun Series was focused on Red Crowned Cranes. So far Pure Land has been all about lions, but I plan to use other favorite mammals and some other birds in the future. Horses are definitely going to figure into this series. I imagine deer will, also, maybe a mountain lion and/or bobcat, the characters that are my neighbors are always of interest to me. So, are many creatures that I have never seen in the wild, such as monkeys. I would like to paint nonhumans in beautiful landscapes. That is the vision I choose.
