Words Are Rocks

My next series of 4" x 4"s is based on text. The spoken or written word is the rock that is my foundation, as I am and as I will become.  Advice from friends, a letter from someone lost for years, a book to teach skills or simply free my imagination..... these are the basis of a sometimes complex life




So far, this is the group that I'm happiest with.

  4. these are fantastic Jo-there is such a nice flow about them, along with the soothing colors-like looking into a shallow pond of ripples!

  5. I love how you're able to work in a series - and make each series so different from each other yet so connected within the series. Do you work on them individually or have them all going at the same time? I really like how you were able to integrate the text within the image.....beautiful pieces.
