Pan Door.2017.300dpi.full_image.ccoe

This is Pan Door, 2017, 6″ x 6″, watcolor, ink and pastel.

My children and I spent much of their earlier years in a northern Arizona forest. When we went into the woods, it was the closest thing to church we attended. There, we played, layed silently in falling aspen leaves, built forts, discussed mythology, ruminated on spirituality and continually discovered more about each other and the ecosystem of which we are small parts. Recently, my son turned thirteen. It is certainly a right of passage. We now live in a desert city, though the forest remains deep in us. We open ourselves up to new kinds of ecosystems, life stories, friends, dreams and experiences.

Here is Soft Ferocities, 2017, 5″ x 5″, watercolor, ink and pastel.

I reflect often on our human emotional and physical neediness. We are prolific and impacting, to one another, to the earth on which we build lives. I feel, in a way, these rabbits are metaphorical for our fragility, as well as our innate ability to build/destroy.  Both fragility and the powerful ability to adapt our environments to ourselves have many facets, many ramifications.

My studio is messier than it’s ever been – it’s because I have been hopping from project to project. I’m sort of swimming in post-its, watercolor testing strips and various paintings stacked here and there. It’s fun to be involved in several things at one time. Amidst it all, there is always time for drawing.

Here is my submission for Illustration Friday’s theme: Heights. My thoughts on this… I believe hope is a precious thing. It reaches above us even while we are confused or pushed down.
