Commissioned by Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in collaboration with University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Arts Council. 

The Waltz is a multi-layered painting to facilitate a sense of healing and refuge.  Spontaneous pops of color are used to convey joy and vitality.  Placed in the grand lobby, this work is the entry point of the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center by warmly welcoming all.

The viewer can see abstract foliage with elements of clouds and droplets set on serene blue cascading watermarks.  The staccato rhythm of droplets weaves in and out of the drifting cloud movements.  This is interspersed with scherzo-like explosions of blooming radiance.­­

There are intertwined layers of paint, hills and valleys of glitter with pools of gold leaf that can best be appreciated upon close inspection but also work together in harmony when viewed from a distance.  White gold signifies preciousness and divinity and is strategically placed throughout the work illustrating that life is to be treasured.  The surface of the painting subtly changes its hue by reflecting the range of dynamic colors, light and movement from the lobby. 

Delineating lines and shapes, the flowers were drawn and traced again and again becoming more abstract and refined by getting rid of needless contours. This repeated refinement leaves just enough lines to convey meaning in the purest form that I want viewers to see; no particular flower, just the essence of blossoming foliage.  This abstract image can be more easily digested by the viewers without having to be overwhelmed by all the details.
