Author Statement: Northern Wisconsin is always filled with big blue skies, and wonderful fresh colors, sounds of silence, wind, waves and wings.
When you bravely create a line, a line like no other you have done, for me the line of purple in “Yellow Trees and Blue Sky” was placed with concern, and when you are honest with yourself and how you wish to create marks in your work, and about who you are, your artwork will stand out all by itself. The artwork will be recognized as one of a kind, something that needs to always be present in our understanding of art. Art has a lot to do with what the concept of art represents and for me “Yellow Trees and Blue Sky” represent my love for natural and the real. While the artwork may be pleasant to the eye – it is what the work and the concept of art that are what count for me.
"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
