Laurel’s work convinced me that the engaging wide path and lovely mosaic imprinted on her path, metaphorical or not, was someplace where I wanted to go – right now. The structure of the painting was so harmonious, serene and calm. I found it fascinating that Laurel’s setting incorporated so many wonderful rich elements; mountains, beautiful lush green landscape, plants, and rich textural forms saturated in colour. The colours are divine in this work. It is a winning combo. All the boxes are ticked here.
