New Year's Eve 2022

 

















The end of the western calendar year, a time of transition for many of us. I believe it is important to have a vision of the future that is affirming. Humanity cannot solve our collective issues without unifying with each other and realizing that we are the managers of nature now. For too long we have seen ourselves as humans vs. nature. This vision must be replaced with one that is integrative.

Winter Solstice 2022

 










Spread made using images cut from holiday cards that feature nature themes, an envelope, plus gel printed papers. The Winter Solstice is a time of pausing, when nature is at her slowest, with a promise of regeneration of all life.

Little Paintings on the Floor


 Small (6x6x1/8") wood panels with collage on them, lying on my studio floor drying and curing. Acrylic and paper.

Cardboard Decorations


 I painted these on corrugated cardboard from a shipping box I received. They had those great holes (except for that little square one). I painted them dark green, dark red, blue-green or purple and then stenciled gold patterns on them. Not sure what I will do with them!

Dancer Pair Again

"Dancer II"

I changed the background on Dancer II to a deep red to set off the greenish circles. Dancer I has stayed the same, though it might be better if the background was lighter. Still pondering.
