The impetus for Turbulence comes from the unexpected turmoil brought on by the layering of a pandemic, the upcoming US presidential election, daily signs of global warming and the state if the economy. It feels as though the sky is growing dark, the sea is churning and lightening is streaking across the sky.

Changing of the Guard

One of the joys of rising early to walk the neighborhood is being treated to the night sky transitioning to the morning sky. There is a point when night and day hang in the balance. This is my interpretation of that precious moment.

Last Light

A detail of several cherry tree branches in bloom set against a vibrant orange evening sky.

Last Light is the result of experimenting with various computer apps to create an image that resonates with me. It reminds me of watching sunsets from our condo, the trees across the lake backlit with glorious color.

A very subtle turquoise color block representing both sky and water. A thin green, acting as a horizon bisects the background

Reflection #2

The piece began by painting with ink blended with shaving cream as an opportunity for some joyful experimentation. When an unexpected thin green line, reminiscent of a distant horizon appeared during the drying of the ink the scene was set. Reflection #2 came alive with judiciously applied free motion machine quilting and thread painting.

Siren's Song

November 2016

72" H x 56" W

$8,000

Squares and triangles of a variety of values in the mint green and sky blue family

Leaning over the balcony of our ocean liner cabin I found myself mesmerized by the wake trailing the ship. The fluctuating patterns of swirling foam contrasting with the intense dappled greens of the sea created a Siren’s Song, begging for deeper study. Straightening up I was treated to a glorious sunset, as seductive as the ocean it was reflected in. Siren’s Song captures this experience using traditional blocks to create an abstraction of a photograph taken of the wake. Three different blocks, each playing homage to water through their names, were used. Intense free motion quilting designed to emulate foam and eddies continues the ocean illusion.
