"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’
