A Woman of Fiber and Light

9/8/17 I came across a series of contemporary pieces of art at the Philadelphia museum recently. Hanging threads of knotted plastic some with bright color some with more organic natural tones. I wanted to touch them and “understand”. While I could see the connection between the works they were also very different and I’ll say […]

Dreams like Water Droplets

6/26/17 Notes to Myself: Dreams, like water droplets cling to the slippery, sharp edge like water droplets. Waiting to fall or evaporate into something else.

Aging in Strength

7/19/16 Notes to Myself: Feeling a little sad at the moment. Sometimes writing helps more than painting. My dog was diagnosed with kidney failure and lyme disease last Friday. She’s 14 and has lived a good life for the 12 years I’ve had her. I just brought her home from the vet and I think […]
