I started the triangle series the summer of 2016 while staying at a lake in New Hampshire.
Flipping through an old quilting book looking for painting inspiration, I came across a section of patterns called Flying Geese which refers to rows of triangles.
There were geese honking on the lake. It seemed like a sign.
I've been painting triangles ever since.
I remembered a quilt I made when I was twenty. It was a wedding gift. The woman at the fabric store said I had to pick out a plain white fabric for the background. I don't know why I had to rebell against the idea, but I chose a very busy pattern for the background and made the other pieces plain.
These paintings are an echo of that decision.

The backgrounds are chaotic. But the triangles are organized. So one's eye goes back and forth.
Several panels together make a big statement.
Georgia from Pennsylvania said, "I love it!!! I've even changed the location where I'm going to hang it.
I thought it would represent the craziness that has been in my life the past three years. But it actually brings me peace."
I can create a painting to match any interior.
