Hi Kristen, I appreciate you taking time to comment on Firewheels. Your analysis of artists' work is so beautiful, and I have been hoping you'd choose one of my recent pieces to review. Thank you for the insightful critique.

Curator’s Comments:  


I was happy to see your new pastel painting Firewheels recently posted to the site.  Having enjoyed your work for several years now, I find myself contemplating your deft handling of representational versus abstracted natural environments. Firewheels beautifully straddles both approaches, with delicately rendered flowers in the foreground space which flow into a sea of more impressionistic blooms.  The undulations in the grass create atmospheric depth, while contributing to the gentle movement of the landscape. I also admire the formal decision to break up the visual field with darker shadows in the top of the composition, which anchor the viewer within the grassy expanse. While you haven’t indicated the dimensions of this particular work, I could imagine it on a dramatically large scale.  The delicacy of the marks builds into a more forceful expression.
