For 2020 there will be a new Southeastern Guide Dog out there for you to add your contribution to! This is Penny, she is waiting for the lovely Erin Papke to come by and paint her face - Erin does all the faces of the SEGD pups I finish (this is the 4th). She is covered in pennies (except for 3 coins, 1 on purpose - see if you can find the quarter and 2 dimes by mistake - when I noticed, it was too late to take them off).
My thought was to inspire donations, so it just made cents!
I’ve fallen into a new series titled “Elevations in Time”, some of you may have seen some of these on Instagram as I’ve been experimenting.
With the passing of my Mom, they have coalesced into an exploration of space and time, diving into how different perspective is whether you’re looking up at the mountain from the base, or closer to the peak looking back.
My goal is to illustrate various states of transition with an emphasis on the impact of perspective.
I finished the latest “Dreamer” triptych! Very textural, I used gesso to achieve the layers of strings for the background. The figure delineation is still silver, but this time I used a paler shade of metallic to lighten the feel. All lines seen are raised on the canvases. This is a very breathy piece, soft and subtle, it encourages the viewer to relax and allow their natural flow to emerge. 40”T x 90”W, $3500
Here’s the latest Daily Meditations. When I create these, I am focusing on different things. I choose the palette based on that and let the energy flowing direct my choices of materials and designs. People have asked, so in the interest of letting them out into the world, I offer them at $100 for your choice.
Let me explain what these are, as you all know, I’ve been wrestling with ways of expressing myself since selling my steel shop (opting for physical health with less pain). I have been playing with various 3-dimensional media, aluminum rod, pvc sheet, wood, etc. All good, but I’m missing working large. So I felt it was time to take a breathe and focus internally. These necklaces were inspired by the wonderful work I see in the Sundance catalog, and cannot afford ($380 for some!!!)
Recognizing that I have bins of materials from past projects, I sat myself down and brought my attention to creating in the moment.
These are the results of daily meditations focusing on being present and noticing life’s details. I hope you enjoy! I offer them at $100 for your choice.
Check back for more as they come into being!
