What I see becomes a sort of visual illumination, like a match struck unexpectedly in the dark, a gift, lighting my path into wonder -Virginia Woolf

In lieu of Open House

Leave a comment

This posting is in lieu of an Open House held in my studio. This grouping comes from an interest in the travels of the moon as viewed from my studio in its various presentations and of the passing of the seasons. They express a sense of wonder with nature and my urban location. Most are painted on washi, a Japanese paper made from Kozo fibre or on silk with opaque watercolour called gouache that I have grown to love. Titles, medium, size and price follow each image. Best of the Season during these times.
