As with all my work, I’m always bound on a journey with many surprises. I’m not a quick painter, by any stretch. It almost always takes a while for a story to unwind itself in the layers of water, ink and pastel. I step forward. I step back. I work on several paintings at once in order to keep the hum going, so when one piece needs to be left for a while, I can move to another painted narrative in-process. Each time I work, I’m encountering a great amount of puzzling, miring at times, and intense learning. Because of how varied this last year has been in my life, I find no end of ideas that I want to express.
Below is the new work, We Speak Our Fossil Alive, 2017, watercolor, ink and pastel, 20 1/8″ x 19 1/16″.
On another far more pressing note… it is my hope that we allow equality to stand firmly at the helm of our hearts. May we be in solidarity with those who suffer injustice and whose rights are threatened in these strange political times. Never has it been more important to speak and act, in addition to feeling our convictions to support unity in America. This is why I march. It’s why I say “resist with love”. Peace to all of you!
