How the smallest things can inspire in big ways

December 8, 2019

Walking through an asphalt parking lot, I noticed a community of tiny green plants pushing up through a new crack in the pavement.  I always thought that covering large areas of Earth with concrete and asphalt was like suffocating the ground below it.  But, nature will find a way to bring beauty no matter what gets in the way.

This is the first layer in a new painting/handwoven work.  The background is painted and treated to create a stone like look.  I masked out the leaf images and the next step will be painting these.  Cant wait!
