by chance journey, a poem…
i was nudged to journey
while drawing + painting
something drew me in
to a rooted place
buried... threads fragile
thin multi-coloured mark-making
ever so lightly... tenderly
my slanted hand steered
i offered a wee hello while
i migrated... wandered... hunted... chased
i was on to something
travelling alongside washed
painted threads of
my own weave r
very fine, dazzling tapestry path of filament light
capturing a glimpse
my tender glittered strength
torn-worn tangles... grief... joy... pain... celebrations
some grief drops
splashing upon my soaked page
blending abstract... accident... of be-ing
my owned inked hues
i will definitely call again soon.

In memoriam—for those we have lost since the pandemic, especially for dear Seraphina who we lost so tragically last summer…
This piece is from a pressed leaf that i found in our back yard here on Gabriola…
It is finished on a 12 x 12 canvas, the background behind the leaf is painted in a glow-in-the-dark pain— to depict, that “our spirit lives on…’ — the outside framing and sides are painted in a metallic gold.
Last fall, while we were packing up to move, i gathered some of the leaves out of our yard and put them into a press and didn’t look them until earlier this year. When i was preparing for the ‘Squared show’ that happens here on Gabriola, i pulled out this one leaf, and was astounded as to how exquisite it turned out... wishing i could remember what kind of leaf it originally was, because it had transformed so much. And, so, i have not changed the leaf at all—it is in it’s original state and i was/felt compelled to include it into a piece of art and title it, “requiem—who is remembered lives!’—as we all have experienced so much loss over the last few years.
