Grace and Wisdom

"Grace and Wisdom"
Acrylic on watercolor paper
24 x 30

Next up in the "Vessels" series is Grace and Wisdom. Symbolic of "the old sage" passing wisdom of the ages to "one who waits". This is done on watercolor paper and i must say harder to glaze than the gessoed canvases even though it is primed with 3 coats of gesso. Always something to learn!

Channel of Peace


24 x 24

For some reason this piece really came from the soul. With all the unrest in the world and many of the oppressive issues that are facing women i like to think that we can all do what we can to bring peace to every corner of the world just by meditating on it.

In addition to the conceptual part of the work I really enjoyed getting to know some new colors and combinations that really spoke to me in creating this piece. Also, up until now most of my figures did not contain facial features. I think this because of the spiritual nature but now i feel the work is moving toward the more earthly and thus the fleck of an eye.

I hope you will be moved to think about peace in your corner each day! :)
