Late Bloomer has been a breath of fresh air for me in my studio for the past year. I am excited to share this work with you, as it brought me great joy to make these paintings.
This series started with a friend and a beer, as many things do. It just so happens that this friend created this beer. As a patron of the arts, collaboration was inevitable, and Fleurs, by Ambitious Ales, was the beer that inspired these works.
LATE BLOOMER is an exploration of play with composition and color. The arrangement of sunflowers has been deconstructed and the landscape manipulated to redefine the space and subject matter. By referencing the same source composition of the sunflowers, variations on the arrangement began to blossom.
