Spring in Virginia

Working on a new piece in Virginia - I am creating mud lines on some rocks in the mountains. The dirt at the rock site is not the color I want so I have to carry  iron rich dirt from the creek area below to make my dirt dauber lines. I am expecting this piece to take at least two days to finish. You can look for the final image under “Work/ Communions” on my site. 

Working on this series, Communions often feels more like play than work. Bringing each image to fruition requires patience, a 2-3 day commitment, and manual labor, but the whole process is very enjoyable. 

The pictured arrowhead was found when I went to the creek to wash up. I bent down in the creek and there it was. A gift.

A month ago I was in Ithaca, NY giving a lecture at Ithaca College. I was asked to discuss my process and the intersection of photography with performance and sculpture. In addition to enjoying my time with the art students and faculty I had a grand time with my friend Sara. And yes, that is ice in April on Cayuga Lake. 

Work back from France

My work just returned from a show in France!  I had some of my images printed on metal and here is one of them propped on my mantel. Wish I could have gone to La Porte Peinte Centre Pour Les Arts to see all the work. The front and back of the card announcing the show is shown here.
