The Immensity

Image
  One of my first existential awakenings happened when I was a young 20-year-old. My boyfriend and I were staying at his parent’s house in Western Kansas. We decided to drive into the country at night, away from the lights of the town. We found a dirt road between some fields, parked, and climbed onto the hood of the car. The sky was huge, the night clear, and I saw more stars than I had ever before. I felt like I was under the great dome of the universe. As we viewed the stars I became aware of the scale, of the great expanse of what I was seeing. I also became aware of my smallness. In this view of the night sky, I sensed the cosmic order, and while I was included, I was tiny and insignificant. This shocking realization, was an opening to see the immensity of the cosmic order.

New stone assemblages have been created in 2021! Of course, there are fossils and shells from Cayuga Lake and stones from Taughannock Creek,  but many other interesting objects made their way into these compositions.   Timeless Grace Humanity in Deep Slumber Balancing Act Beyond Ourselves Two Lights

What It Means To Be Human

Image
During the month of June, I made these quick sketches with pastels. I'm experimenting with adding color to the narrative images. The drawings are 11x15". As usual, the theme of my work is - What It Means To Be Human. I hope you see a reflection from your own experience.
