Mind flower

 The mind and the releasing of all the thoughts inside our heads.  The flower on the top left is actually made of 3 anatomical drawings of the brain.  The tendrils from it are reaching out and grabbing on to everything.

Mind heart body

 This is about the mind, heart and body connection and how the influence of all three affects how people touch the world.  The pictures are of my children but I wanted to represent any person so I blurred their faces with design images.  It is hard to see (from the picture) the anatomical heart that is being held over the chest in the photo on the far right.  I entered this artwork in the Country view Challenges contest for "Anything Goes". http://countryviewchallenges.blogspot.com

Black and White

This is a black and white challenge piece.  It doesn't look as good in the photo as it does in reality because you can't see the snow glitter! The trees are birch trees if you can't tell.

Hattie & Hattie

I made this for my sister who named her dog (one of her most favorite things in the world) after Hattie McDaniel from her favorite movie Gone With the Wind.  I thought it would be neat for the two Hatties to get together for a picnic!

Crenelated hearts

This is my expression of nursing.  From our crenelated hearts

to the healing touch that starts from the beginning and circles around to the very last moment

caring for and loving people of all kinds-in their weakest moments.

Dragonflies



 
 
 
 
Dragonflies...
I created this for my friend, Elly.   
 
 

Grand Menagerie

This is my expression of women and how we are kind of shot into the world and then do all the tumbling and turning to figure out who we are and juggle many things along the way. 





It also expresses how we are all the same in that we all are curiosities in our own way...juggling the same issues and making up one big menagerie of difference and sameness.

The images in this art work are from the book Shelburne Museum Circus Collection by Kory Rogers
