Just to Be, mixed media, 7×5 inches

“it is a serious thing // just to be alive / on this fresh morning / in this broken world.” – Mary Oliver, Red Bird

The inspiration for this piece came from an afternoon spent on a canoe. I hadn’t been in a canoe since I was a little girl. I felt such tremendous peace with the world in that little vessel. I saw the swallows flitting about over the water and just felt the moment that I was in. This piece will be in an upcoming show at Lark and Key Gallery early 2017.
