Most of these works are based on actual landscapes I’ve seen in right before me, and somehow there was a mood to them, or I was in a mood (usually a bad one) and somehow the amalgamation or elements clicked.
Sometimes it was an arraignment of objects - chairs and trees, for instance - or the sky... something felt right (or wonderfully wrong), and the piece came from that. Only on a few occasions are one of these something I made up.
Now, as to what the mood is, or what the cryptic titles might mean... I know what these pieces mean to me, but of greater value is what they might mean to you.
Art is s story for you to complete, not a multiple choice test which will be graded.
