The idea of animals existing with humans nearby has always been a strong theme in my work. Night ForestGone the SunNight Call and Moonrise are all little imaginary peeks at forest life at dusk or during the night. They were inspired by photos taken by my “Trail Cam” of animals walking into and out of a small wooded environment very near my home. Whenever these images were taken, I was oblivious to the animals being there, and they weren’t concerned about my proximity, either.  A few turn around to see who’s there; light may catch their eyes, but they are relaxed and calm, simply going about their lives with the Colorado moon lighting their way as they leave tracks in the snow as evidence of their coming and going.
