Letting go as the arbiter of what appears the painter coaxes the materials themselves to form an image. What appears in the painting is as the earth appears: nature’s own qualities of form are allowed to emerge unimpeded.

Tools: paintbrush, flat-head shovel, oil, acrylic, fresh snow, soil on canvas.
(1) Build up the plane with materials
