The Speed of Life

12" x 12"  Mixed Media on wood panel

"That's the shock: All cliches are
true. The years really do speed by.
Life really is as short as they tell
you it is."

Calm Amidst The Chaos

12" x 12", Acrylic on wood panel

"Our real discoveries come from chaos,
from going to the place that looks
wrong and stupid and foolish."

12" x 12, Mixed Media on Wood Panel

This is a painting I did as an assignment for a class taught by Nicholas Wilton. I'm learning a ton! We had to use a limited palette this week of black, white, dark red and yellow ochre (and any colors that resulted from mixing them). I wrote out Mary Oliver's famous poem "Wild Geese" many, many times in the hair of the figure. This one is hanging in my study.
