The Hope Series of paintings came about while walking with Hope, the greatest dogfriend. She is very fond of river stones. Through Hope I also discovered a great fondness for stones. Not in her way of chasing and digging, more the colours, natural stripes and textures...

Where did this stone originate?

What greater whole was it a part of before?

It is so humble, and solid, and huge even when but a small stone. So at peace with the water, air and sun's affects.

Where is it going?

Where am I going?

Where are we going?

The Hope series led me in to the One series of paintings.

I made this painting after meditating with a small red river stone in my hand for a time.
