With the circle at its heart, the "Four Seasons" series has slowly emerged.
These digital paintings are both finished pieces and springboards for the videos I will be creating. The videos for early spring and early summer are available for viewing below. The others still to be created. I am currently on the hunt for funding to print them the "Four Seasons" series, so if you know of any great grants I should try for or a generous patron of the arts let me know! The 12 pieces will be printed as 30" circles on canvas or on aluminum.
Each an independent piece and each a part of the whole.
From the maiden still unformed, but growing with promise and searching for her power to the mother whose strength is the bounty of the earth and the creator of life in all its forms, to the wise grandmother who leads the tribe trough her thoughtful advice, insight and deep understanding, I have created a series to honor all women and our common mother the earth.
To all my wonderful models
I started my series with close friends and relatives but expanded to more recent friends towards the end of the project. They hail from 5 continents, 9 countries, and range in age from 14 to 90. Among my models are a potter, a dancer, a singer, new graduates in their first jobs, a medical student, mothers, grandmothers, educators, physical therapists and a nurse. All women of great strength and profound beauty.
