A series.

Improvisations.

Mixed media on board. Each measures: 16″H x 38″ to 40″ W. 

Drawn, painted over, drawn, cut, composed and created.

Please note: my work is an experience, that needs an ACTUAL encounter for its truth.

It is likened to viewing a photograph of a lover in contrast to reveling in the actual presence of the beloved-a real commUnIcation.

So it is with ALL my work.

Spirituals calling out: 

“Were I with thee / Wild nights should be / Our luxury”*;

an internal tsunami. 

* Emily Dickinson

The work is naked, a pure breath lifted from the heartspine; a solo trumpet echoing splendor; dances spliced into one;
blueprints; heaven; blue of ancient Ming vases holding lullabies and desire.

Primal elegance.

Silence 
provides beautiful stillness-not absence,
beautiful stillness.

COURAGE IS serene LOVE / serene LOVE IS COURAGE
