Valentines at the Pop Up Gallery

I was feeling the love vibe earlier this month and made some valentine hearts, along with other springy pieces. I decided to deliver these to the Evanston Pop Up gallery and refreshed my shelf. It was fun to determine a new configuration and see where it leads. Some items have been sitting for a while, […]

Communicating Love

The Textual Encounters show at ARC Gallery inspired me to create two new collages in February. I wrote about Encounters with Language prior to the show opening. When I warm up the various wax colors I generally have two new substrates to play with. This keeps me from ruining a layer when I am too […]

Self-love

It’s Valentine’s Day week. Hearts are everywhere, roses abound, chocolate is allowed, and romantic getaways are promoted. Love is grand for those who have found it, and I enjoy observing the couples who are truly meant for each other. Yet many of us don’t get to plan a night out for two. We’re busy living […]

Love really should be celebrated every day (not just tomorrow), and the couples who do have the best relationships. However, the most important love one can have is for oneself. […]

Sassy Aphrodite

“With her, beauty comes. The winds flee before her and the storm clouds; sweet flowers embroider the earth; the waves of the sea laugh; she moves in radiant light. Without her there is no joy or loveliness anywhere.” ~Edith Hamilton, Mythology There she is, in LOVEly company at Dick Blick Art Materials. You can view […]

vibrant hearts

“Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cÅ“ur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”  ~ Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince  […]
