Empathy: One Heartbeat

Back in May 2014, I submitted this abstract painting in a reader challenge called "Put a Stamp On It" sponsored by Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. 
Empathy: One Heartbeat
This is what I wrote:
Empathy: A world where all humans are connected to one giant heartbeat and we feel each others joys, pleasures, and good deeds.  A world in which Peach on Earth is everywhere.  One Heart is an original textured abstract painting of a landscape with the flow of life woven throughout.
One Heart: 7 Continents and 5 Oceans
I did not win.  However, the idea of continuing to create art in which the flow of life is woven throughout our 7 continents and 5 oceans has stayed with me.  We are all connected.

Sending Peace to all  from Baltimore.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark.
See Us,  is also the title of the main poem in the book.  I silkscreened the poem on the textile page.  When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet.  This created haunting, ghost-like imagery. The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
