Bridges ❤

There’s something about bridges – the shape of the arches; the reflections in the water; the history. Then there’s all the ways we talk about them as metaphors – burning our bridges; crossing bridges; water under the bridge; a bridge too far, bridging the gap – to name just a few! This latest series of …

My mother bought me these flowers from her garden. When I said how lovely they were, and commented what a difference that one little orange flower made, she shared with me something that really struck a chord.

Poetry and painting – finding moments of joy

I’m excited to share with you that I’m putting the finishing touches to a series of nine paintings called “Flying Low,” inspired by some beautiful words by the poet Mary Oliver: “Today I’m flying low and I’m not saying a word.

But I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling a terrific distance. Stillness. One of the doors into the temple.” Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings. I made most of the pieces in this series, during the coronavirus crisis. With so many going through such worrying and difficult times, I tried to keep positive and focus on …
