Not Intended For Ground Contact

17" x 23" x 3", mixed media with collage and charcoal pencil on deep wood panel

There is always a pull between opposites, especially work and home. When do we put down the phone, the computer? When do we stop taking phone calls and pay attention to the person beside us? When do we feather our nest?We spend so much time working or agonizing over work that we carry with us. But what about our home life? How do we find the balance?

Gardens like paintings are hard work and always a work in progress. And like paintings, it is always difficult to know when to stop.

Holding Fast

10" x 10" x 2", mixed media on deep wood panel

When our world seems out of control where do we go? Who or what do we cling to?Sometimes the world comes at us too fast, and we just have to hold on.
