The artist states "Fertile Fields is a series that pays homage to the landscape created by the farmers and ranchers of North America. Firmly planted in a realistic sense of scale, perspective and images, the art blossoms with an unrealistic sense of color." This transformation occurs when the color wheel is shifted. What would look blue in reality is now seen as red. Yellow is now viewed as blue while red appears as yellow. The shift is applied to the secondary colors as well. Using the "wrong" colors to paint an otherwise realistic landscape creates a sense of the unreal. This series continues the artists quest to use color to challenge the viewer. Questions range from "do you dream in these colors?" to " is it from a photo with a filter?" or "are you looking through night-vision goggles?" No matter what questions are raised by the technique, the fact remains that agriculture relies on the rich and fertile soil of its fields to produce the bounty from the land. The artist relies on vivid colors for a richly painted work of art.
