A True Awakening

 

Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Wyoming has been a true awakening for me. I'm sitting at the highest point of the ranch, altitude 8,600 feet above sea level, on the Barrett Ridge. Behind me is the city of Saratoga and beyond is the Sierra Madre Mountain range. Just to my right and stretching as far north as the eye can see is the Medicine Bow National Forest Mountain range.

Can't begin to tell you how enchanting the whole experience has been. The four mixed-media works pictured are the beginning of a new "portrait" series based on family and friends of my home town, Lawrenceville VA, and the many friends and family I've collected along the way.

These works evoke textile as identity and traditions of African American quilt making.
