Greetings and Happy Spring! Our Star Magnolias, Flowering Plums and other budding trees are full of white blossoms and silver leaf buds – even though we had wet snow flurries and hail three days ago – Spring is moving into full view! Brilliant white blossoms blowing in the wind, mixed up with snow – the whole scene was mesmerizing and surreal – I could not clearly see or focus on any one thing. This monotype attempts to express these sensations. I remember a wonderful Japanese woodblock print that so eloquently expressed Plum blossoms amidst falling snow. “Spring” 18″ x 24″
- In response to a comment: Lonely? How interesting. Actually, the opposite. I’m making places I would like to walk. Attracted to windswept hills, walking through landscapes, seeing outrigger presence of civilizations past – posts, trees, stones, dwellings, farms. Not much interested in the modern. For me, these places are spaces to think, to hear God, to see stars, to smell grasses, to feel the earth and sky. The opposite of lonely. Quite.
- “Rain, Presently” a new monotype, just finished yesterday – finally! I thought to call it many other things having to do with solitude, peace, water, columns, presence. But, after dodging between showers to take photos of the work – a ritual around here – the event became the name. Ink on paper, 18″ x 24″.
- I’m back. Sorry, it has been ages since my last post. Currently I have a solo show at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts, Bainbridge IS.- 40 works there. Today, I am posting a new work just finished this week, Transformation: 18″ x 24″monotype.
