Summer is so voluptuous, ripe in the fruits of the earth. A time of pleasure.This juicy piece winks at fruit of the red palm which reminds me of the Artemis of Ephesus. As a fertility goddess she is covered in breasts.
A man’s fantasy…no one who has ever suffered breast pain during a run or that time of the month would imagine beauty quite like this!
My summer fruits, however, anyone can embrace year round. Voluptuous!

Celebrating the fertility of the landscape discovered on a hike in the Grand Tetons park.
Begun with watercolors and finished with passages in oil on a stretched gesso canvas that was treated with a proprietary absorbent ground. It was fun trying out different combinations of materials and then…the perfect ground! Because what artists doesn’t have a bit of the mad scientist inside?

This one is still drying on my easel. I’ve been hiking throughout California, encountering redwoods, meadows, vineyards. I was remembering a few lines from an Emily Dickinson poem, ” My Cocoon tightens — Colors tease –I’m feeling for the Air –A dim capacity for Wings” as I trailed a partially hidden creek.

No matter what the weather outside, this will always bring a bit of bright skies and expansive land to mind.
There’s something special about in-betweens, like the shore between land and sea, the twilight between night and day, the shimmering breath between two sets of lips. These hinges that open and close the liminal veils between here and there, this and that. Between kisses.

I was so fortunate to spend time in the redwood forests this past week. Despite taking a spill during a particularly steep hike that ended in some minor repelling, it was well worth it.
I find so much inspiration in nature. A slow unfolding of time reveals subtle treasures that are easy to miss when zooming by in a car.
