This small commission (approx. 14″ x 20″) was made as a wedding gift for people who love hiking and nature. Reports are it was received with delight.
This slide show offers some of the creation process, as well as the completed piece.
Wonderful news this week! I have been invited to be a featured artist at Illahe Gallery www.illahegallery.com this February.
I will be creating 2 – 3 pieces similar in process to “Antelope Canyon,” below. I begin with a photo or photos of a place in nature; I create an initial design of about 18″ x 24″ and a final design of about 3′ x 5′ with much greater detail.
I love this process. I feel myself on the inside of the inside as I commune with the heart of nature that the image yearns to bring forth. I experience a deep communion with the place and qualities of the earth I am rendering. It nourishes my soul, and I emerge from hours in my studio with a happy heart and a light spirit.
I am in the process of choosing my images for the show. I will perhaps choose a further image from the Slot Canyons…very different from “Antelope.” I have also long desired to create a tide pool image. And I have wonderful images of snow creatures, trees and snow, that I would love to create in fiber.
I’ll keep you posted!
- “Antelope Canyon” 3′ x 5′ Slot Canyons of the America SW, where floods have worn deep, narrow canyons. Sunlight overhead casts deep shadows onto the sandstone walls, creating dramatic colors and contrast.
