wonderful friend. They are so very fragile and beautiful--and have caused me to notice the natural world around me not only in finer detail, but in a more meaningful way. Early one morning, while walking wolfie and the pup, I found a mysteriously spotted seed pod and a dark, dark brown acorn. I slipped them into the warmth of my pocket and carried them home to my studio where I immediately went to work with paint brush and canvas.
To me, these paintings represent the gift of friendship, love, strength, beauty, fragility, mystery, growth...
Each item embodies the endless cycle of life and death and life. Are we really so different from an egg or an acorn or a seed pod? One can look for a long time at something, but it truly amazes me how the whole world shifts once we start paying attention.
