The Shifting Sandbar

Nature shows us how to navigate change in the shifting sandbars of a river. Sediment allows waters to shape it into new beings without resistance. This piece is my expression of the Smoky Hill an her sandbars, a slow river that meanders through some of the prettiest parts of the American High Plains. It has pieces of Smoky Hill River clay which embody hundreds of miles of fertile soil that builds the vast grassland. Also contains stone, acrylic and and rust. May it inspire you to go with the flow.

Over the Moon

Warm growing months are nature’s chorus of vibrant life and hopefulness. The perfect time to sit outside and watch the stars drift under the enveloping light of a glowing moon. This homage to the season of renewal has stone texture, grain, rust, paint and ash of budded field sage, harvest by hand at the peak of growing season so all that delightful energy is there. I finished the painting on the eve of the summer full moon, the perfect combo to warm nights and fireflies. Wishing you a bright sky and goodness.
