The VERDEBLACK works resonated with 
X
spectrograms of bird songs:
graphs that show you the frequency, or pitch,
 of a sound, 
its loudness, and how these change
over the course of the sound; 

X

electrocardiograms of the heart: 
recordings of the electrical activity of the heart
 over a period of time 

X

polygraphs of a lie detector tests: 
recording the person’s breathing rate,
the person’s pulse, 
the person’s blood pressure
 and
the person’s perspiration.

The VERDEBLACK  series
is driven by the energy of regeneration;
 rebirth;
 lush wilderness;
glorious gardens
 and
fertility
signified in the color green.

X

The black is the rich black color,
the nutritious black, of topsoil.
The single black line visually “tilts” each piece
and
“plays” with the dimensions of the background.

Green has great healing power.
It is the most restful color for the human eye;
it can improve vision.

Green suggests stability and endurance.

X

Green is said to be the favorite color of Prophet Muhammad.
The Islamic prophet is said to have worn a green cloak and turban,
and his writings are full of references to the color. 
A passage from the Quran describes paradise as a place
where people “will wear green garments of fine silk.”

Black is associated with power; 
elegance; formality and mystery.

Black denotes strength and authority;
it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color.

Black was one of the first colors used by artists
in neolithic cave paintings.

The VERDEBLACK series is dedicated to my BGB,
my O- sister, a soul friend since
we were TEN years old! 

X

Our friendship has a remarkable soul,
and is a testament and the blessed gift
of an enduring/dynamic/evolving friendship.
I am describing my cherished friend – the unique,
sparkling jewel; irreplaceable Sher.

X

Our friendship is an immeasurable,
sacred garden of all seasons
– ever blooming and an awakening of blessings and love.

X

Her most favored color is green, of course…
