Paintings from the archives

I have been drawing in my sketchbook all day; what a luxury! I am generating ideas for a new project that I don't want to show just yet. In the meantime, here are some paintings from the past several years, all around the "Tree of Life" theme which has been a favorite subject for a long time. (See it also in the logo from the last post.) It's one of those ever-present archetypes. The painting at the top is quite large (5' x 7'), the leaves are 2' x 2', and the last is 18" x 18". These were all done pre-motherhood, ca. 2001.

New work

Here is the logo and sign I recently made for the bookstore at the church where I have my studio. I have become their resident Michelangelo. I had the logo printed large on canvas, which now hangs in the store, and smaller versions will be printed on canvas book bags, bookmarks, etc.

remembering Karl Kopp

Happy Birthday to the late, beloved Karl Kopp. He was a dear friend, teacher, and spiritual guide whom I will always hold dear in my heart. Yesterday, I stumbled across this little remembrance of him I made for the service five years ago commemorating his life. And tomorrow marks the date of his birth. Rest in peace, Karl; we still miss you.

Valentine Flags

I have been working on these new flags. I had fun making and printing the images. These are with Valentine's Day in mind, but are not only for that. I am working on many other images, and will post more as they develop. I am excited for this new format, and all its possibilities. You can purchase in my shop, or contact me directly if you are local.

Also, I finished up this little dreamy painting that has been in the studio for a few months.
