The image is heart/tree/womb/nest
and is  created by layers of graphite
that gleams in external ambient light.
The background is  created by several veils
of white matte paint intermingling
with the graphite
-harkening snow in a wintry evening
or
early dawn.
Or, conjuring a mystical presence
emerging
from
an
enveloping
shroud.

 The Pine Tree series began in 1998
in a time of
enormous
sorrow and loss-
taking the ashes of grief
and
filtering them through
my
desire
to
live.
Become alive.
 
 
O
 
 
 Breathing through the darkness into light,
 groping through raw loss,
navigating through dark waters,
and
finding. through faith,
a shore
of
 hope.
 
 
O
 
 
 A single line was drawn down
 the center of the paper-
an axis connecting heaven to earth.
Sweeping lines were drawn
back and forth, back and forth,
a lullaby,
a meditation of breath
and 
heartbeat.
 
 
O
 
Every day for two years,
I continued
this
practice.
 

 

O
 
A tree,
a pine tree,
emerged.
 I learned that pine trees
 are symbols of
the life force,
prevailing
no matter the tempest.
My works are meditations
and
invocations,  songs,  choruses
and
 expressions
of
glory and grace.
