Temple Blessings (a painting commission)

Three lovely wood panels now hang above the windows in this spectacular Wilmington home. Custom made wide-striped drapes invoke cirque spirit.

The male and female figures were inspired by the feeling of resolution and wonder about the unknown that I felt at Black Rock City during the Temple burn. The trappings of that day, love notes and I miss yous were the highly emotional and human confections that manifested in these more playful and nearly animated figures and the falling ash became blessings in the form of sweet strawberries. How blessed we are in loss when it implies that we have loved and perhaps collectively that love energy flows in us, around us, through us.
