Jones Bayou

Jones Bayou streams under my studio in Cleveland Mississippi and runs through the north of the Mississippi Delta. The bayou changes every day. It rises and falls. It expands and contracts. One day, the water beautifully reflects the skies, the plant life and one day it ripples with the rhythm of rain. 

 

I am absorbed within the process of contemplating, looking and painting the Jones Bayou. By doing this daily, I rediscover myself. While painting and witnessing the daily transformation of the bayou, I am more attached to the present moment while distancing myself from the anxieties of the future. My paintings are mental and physical interpretations of the scenery that I witness. They are transformative records of my engagement with time and place.
