This is the first of five pieces I created for this show. I call it WindSong. I was interested in making complex backgrounds with stylized turbines.

Turbines make for perfect art forms or is it art farms (haha). There are three blades forming a perfect hexagonal shape. They generally exist in clusters, providing unity, proximity and rhythm. They are big and bold, existing in mountains, green fields and oceans which provide splendid backdrops. To me they are reminiscent of Jean Claude and Christo's major art installations around the world. Yet they also provide energy. What's not to like about that.


Viewed against a background of mountains 
in the California desert, 
wind turbines spin together 
when the Santa Ana winds blow.
