To the Lighthouse and Other Inspirations...

Opens July 21, at All Souls Gallery in Kansas City,.I found Virginia Woolf’s extraordinary novel To the Lighthouse inspiring. As I read Woolf’s brilliantly crafted novel of thoughts and observations I found myself jotting word combinations like “flamingo clouds” and “incorrigible hope” on Post-it notes that I attached to the side of my computer screen. By the time I finished the book I had more than a dozen notes, each one containing a phrase that had the power to create a vision in my head. Using fiber paste covered canvas and watercolors I set out to make those phrases come alive. 

There are 13 mixed media images plus the portrait I did of Woolf in pastel. Artist reception is July 26th, 7-9 pm  4501 Walnut Kansas City, MO.  

In addition there are pieces from my series the War on WomeGUNS: American God.
