I have been printmaking with some friends this winter . Without the usual flora available to print with , I  am using other texture.

new work

A few sketches I have done this winter- They speak to an underlayer of experience  brought forward  through the creative process. I recently read Immortal Diamond by Richard Rohr and loved this passage:"Without new symbols, which are someitmes also words, unconscious meanings never break through to consciousness, and the invisible has no way of becoming visible...we do not experience our experiences".
I wrote recently: "my art acts as a "winch", pulling up the bucket of water from the well ".
