Photos, christmas and all that jazz.......

"It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on "
Joni Mitchell wrote and sang this ( 'River' off the lp 'Blue') and I kind feel it... I wish I could skate away from all of this madness, the giving, gifting and everyone playing happy families... when none of us really are.

In brighter news, I am working on scanned work for my March exhibition. I'll share some of  what I am working on below and some of the recent  photos I have been taking. I'll also finish on this festive note: Wherever you are, be safe and happy, may the new year bring all you need.

Scanned mixed media experiments for the series 'Seminal Works':

                                             ‘Untitled #58′  (a.k.a S.O.B.)

                                                          ‘The urban view #9’

                                                           ‘Urban landscape #16’
