A past trip to Portland, Oregon, reminds me of simplifying and gaining clarity. I’ve been obsessing over painting, adding more color, mixing materials, and pushing for new and more colorful outcomes. Then I had to remind myself that less is more. There is beauty in less. There is an art to less. As I looked through these photographs I felt my mind de-clutter. My eyes basked in the sparsity of a reflection, of a rusty fence and a yellow wall. I was experiencing a simple view full of detail.
