Man, in his foolishness …

Man, in his foolishness and shortsightedness, believes he must make choices in this life. He trembles at the risks he takes. We all know, fear. But no. Our choice is of no importance. The moment comes when our eyes are opened, and we see and realize that grace is infinite. We need only await it with confidence and acknowledge it in gratitude. . . Babette’s FeastImage

“Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: Give me leave to do my utmost.” Babette’s Feast

Meadow At the English Boom

Meadow At the English Boom

Camano Island, Washington

I often find myself back in this place. This time nearly three months had past and what a difference that time had made on the formation of this meadowland.

Rising Above the Rest

Rising Above the Rest

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
Emily Dickinson

Not many of us rise to the top but we can all celebrate the possibility when we observe another who does.

Putting It All Together

Putting It All Together

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh

On an outing with a photographer friend, I came across this scene left by high tide returning to low tide. The sky completed the illusion for me.

Ordinary Objects

Ordinary ObjectsOO side

Ordinary Objects

3D rotatable assemblage sculpture of blocks, alphabet letters, and original photographs. This work is the result of my project to photograph ordinary objects that I would not normally (at least before this project!) think to photograph starting from A to Z. The images are at right angles from the plane of the sculpture face and so are not visible till viewed from the side. One can then rotate the piece clockwise to reveal the images from A is for Almonds to Z is for Zipper.

26 inches in diameter, projects about 8 inches from the wall.

One of a kind. Price Available on request.

Lock Steps, Break Even XVI

The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, built in 1911 and called the Ballard Locks by most, provides a way for boats to move from the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal, which connects eastward to Lake Union and Lake Washington or vice versa. These are the steps that are on the south side of the canal. Playing on the title, I liked this quote by Bill Maher:  “We need more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with rebels and free thinkers. It’s overrun with sheep and conformists.”

12″x16″ limited edition of 25 archival pigmented ink on Museo Silver Rag. #1 of 25 is displayed in a front lit vintage metal frame that is powder coated in black. Prices available on request.
