new work going to Chicago

Here are a couple new pieces I'm including in the show I'm delivering to Woman Made Gallery tomorrow.

The first is Greenland - melting channels. It's encaustic, mixed media and satellite imaging of fjords in Greenland and is 24" x 24".

The second is Ross Ice Shelf - imagined melt. 18 x 24" Same media but started also with a satellite map of Ross Island showing elevations. It's a long way from what Ross Island actually looks like though whereas the first piece is more tightly rendered.

week up north

We spent a week camping in Northern Michigan at Sleeping Bear and Fisherman's Island State Park. Here are a few pix. The first photo is from Fisherman's Island State Park. The other two are from a hike on the morraine above Glen Lake at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.

Where we live - the ecology of place

At long last it's finished. This week I hope its final home will be determined. 4 panels, each 45" square - shown here in geographically correct position.

Phase change

pretty much speaks for itself

new work, upcoming stuff

I've been working on this series of small (6" x 6") encaustics for quite a while. Most are from satellite images, a few are photomicrographs and even fewer are regular photos. This group of 25 will be part of my upcoming show phase change at WomanMade Gallery in Chicago.

The show will be up from September 5 to October 2. The opening reception is Friday September 5 from 6-9pm.

Also at WomanMade at the same time will be a show I juried with Lynda Cole - one planet, one experiment and Lynda's solo show
the world between black and white.
