I was lucky enough to have a piece, “Ghosts in the Trees” accepted into the Women’s Caucus for Art NH exhibit, “Tell Me a Story” exhibit, held at the Jaffrey Civic Center. My piece won 2nd prize! What an honor. It was a wonderful exhibit!
Rained last night
Cool and bright this morning
Dampness brought out the red efts; helped 9 cross road
Distinct smell of green- recently chewed leaves
I come upon the brilliant, white, enormous birch, now resting on the wet brown-ness
Yesterday, I had admired its soaring heights, its strength of purpose and design
What stories have been protected, hidden, under that white armor?
I missed the hints, warning signs, changes
It was supposed to happen outside the museum,
was supposed to be a beautiful Fall day,
The good news is that my concept of bringing the forest into less than natural contexts was achieved!
Children, young adults, mothers, fathers, and grandparents participated throughout the afternoon, helping us to build a forest.
Finally, getting to reviewing my experiences last year in Paris. Still haunted by these textures and colors…
Winding stair, warm tones, glowing from under the surface
Light in quiet corners
