SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE NEW "PORTALS" BODY OF WORK!
The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. There are approximately 1000 pieces in the collection to date, so most of the pieces are in the archives, located on the right hand side of the poage-just scroll down a little bit.
Petroglyph began with the wood and metal carved animal, perhaps a goat or an antelope. I paired it with a couple of metal discs and a coin, and several wood canisters. I painted designs which echoed the shapes present in the piece. It reminds me of my time living in the Southwest, and of the first time I ever saw some of the magnificent petroglyphs in Utah.
