The back story

BackToNature_TaProm_Acrylic_40PThere are always stories behind the artwork. When I paint or draw something in the studio, I often relive the experience of being in that place. I think it’s part of what makes the process of doing art so enjoyable for me. I get to be there again. Since I paint places I love, I get to revisit my favorites all the time. Here’s a quick minute and a half video about my “Back To Nature” painting of a tree and the ruins in the Ta Prohm temple complex near Angkor Wat in Cambodia. (Bonus: it’s got original music in the background, improvised for the video.)
