wish you were here
wish you were here,
6×8 inches, mixed media

My recent pieces seem to have a theme, don’t they? You can tell what’s on my mind. This tree was on our walk along the Puget Sound a few blocks from our house.

Missing Seattle….

The actual words read: how i wish you were here

This piece was created using plaster and wax. I think it was my last prepped plaster board that I made in Stephanie Lee’s plaster workshop earlier this year.

    Ah, that tightrope, new place=excitement and adventure, old place=knowing and security....how to walk it without tipping over at times!

    Great piece! The colors are soooo Seattle. I'm actually excited to see how your work changes as you explore and re-discover Chicago.

    Sometimes where you are includes your heart being elsewhere. I love seeing how this is being expressed in your work.

    P.S. I've nominated you for the Brillant Premio Award on my blog. I know you've already done it so don't bother with it again. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy reading and seeing your work.

    Oooo... that plaster technique sounds fun. I'll have to check into it. Love the way the fence shows so many layers of color.
