Title: Fading Away
This is my first attempt at abstract and minimal art. This is a very difficult thing for me as I like lots of color and MORE! But at least I have attempted to try my hand at it. I meant this to be a woman’s face that you can barely see as she is fading away. You can make out the lips in purple and the nostrils above. The hair on the right side is dripping and fading away.
But most people have told me they see a wave hitting a cliff. Big difference from what I see. LOL Well as they say, “Back to the drawing board.”
I was very privileged to have 2 pieces juried into this amazing show. Oct. 2014
I took the above photo at Pensacola Lighthouse. Title- Logarithmic Spiral
I took this photo in New Orleans while at the One Direction concert with my daughter and grand-daughter. We were sitting pretty far up and I zoomed in on the screen and caught this shot.

I decided to enter a set of jewelry from my “Earth Collection” titled, “Fifty Shades of Fall.”
Model, Fran, is wearing my jewelry.
This piece of work titled “Poseidon” was juried into Artel Galley’s show “A View From Above”, January 13 to February 20, 2015.
This photo was taken while I was visiting my sister, Liz, in Savannah, Ga. We went to SCAD Museum of Art and in one of the rooms was a triptych. This is just a very small piece of it. The triptych reminded me of a giant aquarium that had so many things to look at you could never get enough of finding new pieces to look at each day.
The reason I chose to enter this piece is two-fold. I look at this piece and see all the sin that we have in life building up as it goes up the arm and then we dye and are reborn (baptism) all that sin is spit out (forgotten) and we begin a new life.
But since I want everyone to look at this piece and draw their own conclusions I just named it Poseidon from Greek mythology, “God of the Sea”.
One God is a myth and the other is truth.
This is my first t-shirt design. I entered it into a contest and I won runner-up.
