If I had another life, I would study emotional responses—how we translate spoken word and process instructions. Hunters and Gatherers (watercolor and gouache on paper, 36x48)

This piece is from a trip. We were just sitting down to dinner outside our minitrailer when a storm started brewing. Every few minutes I would leap up and take photos of the best view. I was up and down through the meal. Wonderful evening, wonderful memory. Storm Over Summer Lake (oil on linen on board, 16x20)

An intuitive gathering of images balanced the composition, including mandalas and a black bird. Kirigami stencils were added with gold and silver acrylic paints. Flowers Blooming (mixed media on canvas, 24x36)
