The New Sun

Daisy Cockburn's
Thoughts on Painting the California Landscape

I felt connected with the renewing energies of Spring and the full water of the Mattole River, just across the road from where I live,
and captivated by the evening light, which creates a sense of glowing magic, like a passing funfair, in the landscape I'm part of.

I'm working with freedom and constraint as I merge myself with the landscape around me and try to transform it into a third thing, a picture, which has its own demands for freedom and its own constraints - all of which I am discovering as I go along.

Staying engaged in the process is the only requirement.
