Forrest's statement, "I approach art as an observer of the soul, enlightening the viewer about the presence, wonder, and dignity of nature and life.  I want the viewer to value place and person in a space of spirit and heart and bring this illumination into their personal environments.  While painting, i think about scale and how insignificant and unimportant we are in relation to the natural elements like sky, mountains, rivers, foliage, and fauna.  I think about light-warmth and cool-and the play of highlight and shadow, and how nurturing our sun is in the cycle of life.  This direct observation of nature and presence inspires my spectral luminescent works.  My plein air and object abstract pieces are created through a complex layering painting process starting with brushes and then layering tiles of color and striations using pallet knives and other mark-making tools and materials.  My palette and three-dimensional form come from what I see in U.S.A's Southwestern landscape-full spectrum colors and stellar shapes, not just greens, blues, and square angles.  I just love New Mexico!  It is a painter's paradise.

Peggy Trigg's states, My primary focus when painting is the energy of the land, not the actual depiction of what I see.  I try to reflect my feelings for the landscape through the colors I use and loose, strong brush strokes, laying color over color to create depth and texture.  I most often work using a spatula to apply my thick paint.  I primarily use oils and work on both archival birch panels and canvas.  I love the land around me because I was raised in the county by Santa Fe, and working on my family's cattle ranch.  I taught art in high school and focusing  on composition and exploring art techniques.
