Part of "The Seasons" Series (2017)
Hand Dyed, Pieced Silk on Wood Panel | 52.75″H x 42.75”W x 2”D

All of my textile art is ready to hang upon arrival, and includes appropriate wall hardware for the task. I aim to keep things simple for you, so that you can begin enjoying the art right away. "The Seasons" series is unique in that the artwork is attached to the wood panel with Velcro.

Note: There are eight artworks in this series, but only four wood panels have been completed. Therefore, a possibility for a delay of delivery exists. I commission Work Cycle Designs in Fort Collins, CO to hand fabricate the wood panels.

Payment plans for purchase within one year are available--just contact me.

The Seasons series is about ceaseless motion and unending time. During a year of upheaval, I followed a pendulum of solace and concern, my attention on the sky and sun. The conventional winter-spring-summer-fall had outpaced itself and evolved into a daily conversation.

Each artwork in this series is an expression of flickering action and variability. A multitude of color describes this volatility, while line and shape convey direction and strength. Boundless, unrelenting variations in temperature, moisture, and light inspired this series. Persistent, countless moments of wonder and longing guided its creation.
