A Reason to Celebrate: Kimono series 11

A Reason to Celebrate: Kimono series 11

This playful piece is number 11 in my kimono series (read about this series in my blog). There is no deep existential meaning to the piece. It was just meant to be FUN!  It started as celebratory watercolor on rice paper, which, off the roll, is fairly stiff.  But after it was painted and dried, … [View Details]

Blossoms Falling Gently to the Ground

Blossoms Falling Gently to the Ground

This is the tenth in my ongoing kimono series (see blog).  I thought it was to be the last but the series continues to grow beyond this one.  The procedure on this one got a bit complicated and involved melted wax, ink, watercolor and embellishments of gold and red papers.  As it started to come … [View Details]

Blue Feathers Dancing in the Sun

Blue Feathers Dancing in the Sun

This watercolor image comes from a powwow at Red Clay State Park and is one of a series of about a dozen Native American dancers in my portfolio.  At powwows, Native American descendants from many tribes come together to dance, sing and tell stories.  The dancers compete —in a gentle sort of way—by highly decorative … [View Details]

The Blue Hole

The Blue Hole

This is a watercolor of a sacred spot in Red Clay State Park in Cleveland TN.  The Blue Hole is a natural spring that glimmers with a beautiful blue light, the heart of what was the last home of the Cherokee before their forced removal on the Trail of Tears.

The Cat Has a Question

The Cat Has a Question

This brush gesture drawing caught our cat with tail aloft and walking toward me in that typical cat-arrogant way.  His tail suggests that he has a question of utmost importance to pose.

The Council of Trees

The Council of Trees

I love the name of this trail at Red Clay State Park.  It makes me think that those who walk upon this trail might be inspired or governed by the wisdom of the forest.  There is much to be learned among the roots and the limbs and the critters that live therein!

The Meeting Place

The Meeting Place

This watercolor image captures the council house used by the last governing body of the Cherokee nation before their forced removal on the Trail of Tears in 1838.  It is located in Red Clay State Park near Cleveland TN.
