This series of landscapes was based on my desire to combine the natural world with my interpretations of that world. Art is a juxtaposition of the real and the imaginary. As we "see" the world, we have opportunities to use our creative abilities to transform that world into unique works of art. The images in this series were photographs I took over a period of time in various locations including Germany, Boston, Salem, Norway, Italy, Scotland, England, Chicago, New York, Rhode Island, Kansas, and Tulsa. The photographs were manipulated for special expressive effects.
