All pieces works on paper - gesso over shellac; oil pastel/graphite/pencil; 9"x12 to 11x14"

I had been working on a number of these during a trying time – the last months of a loved one’s life and the weeks thereafter. Somehow during those months these were born out of an approach I take in all my pieces so to say they just happened to come about I guess is pretty accurate.

Some pieces in the series are very energetic and filled with life and light. Others deal with darkness and uncertainty.

I think the things in which we engage in life help us deal with the ever-present uncertainties that life brings to us.
