the physical structure of “tiger mountain wildlife”, a composite of 6 small paintings framed in a box, has been developed into the “block paintings” of 2013/14, inter-active pieces where each block is removable - but the painting can also be hung on a wall without any pieces falling out of the box.

i refer to the homestead act in my work often. where i grew up, homesteads dotted the valley and surrounding hills. homesteaders came there with hopes of a better life and some achieved that. many did not. they toiled the land and tried to make a living but Life was very hard in those days. all that remains are a few weary apple trees and daffodil patches. i paint little houses in the landscapes as a tribute to those pioneers.
