-"Home in the Moss", chalk, graphite, and acrylic on recycled paper, 11" x 11".

This last painting, "Home in the Moss", might look familiar to you. It was a piece made last winter and this past week I have revisited it, making changes and adding more darks to push the contrast just a bit. I am delighted by this series. It's nice to imagine being in a place that is alive and growing while we are deep in the clutches of winter. 

I have been busily framing and finishing pieces for a show next month. I'll share more with you soon.
