A short series called "Peoples of the Earth" began. It quickly featured a barred moon, a barren tree of life. Fran Larsen challenged me to understand all the symbols I use. Catherine Chang Liu told me to plan my work, not to waste time hoping something will turn out and to combine my love of spontaneous with the discipline of pouring paint. Both of those ladies have influenced my approach to my work through this past year. The second series became "End of Summer". It doesn't just suggest it's autumn - it also suggests the end of my passage through life.
The Journey Series of the past 4 years continues, I think, just with closer looks and a little more discipline. We all have friends who help us on our way. I have numerous. I am very blessed.
