This series of paintings is inspired by humanity's obsession with taking that which exists naturally and "improving" it. These images are taken through a process of modification. I begin with an image of plant life in my yard. This image is then digitized and modified on the computer. I take this image and use it as the basis for a landscape painting. These landscapes are unfamiliar--and yet familiar. They are beautiful, and yet alien.
