Nasci is a form of the word nascent, meaning being born, or at the beginning. It has been very cold where I live, and even though I love the snow, my thoughts are starting to turn to spring. For me, this picture is a portrait of a new season.

....for the nocturnal traveler.

For IF: Dreaming is a journey inside yourself!

I'm posting this for IF's topic this week, which is fierce. This woman has a fierce energy that will help her to break through tough obstacles.

This is a very tiny painting; 7" x 5", egg tempera and gold leaf on panel. For me, it has the function of a cave painting in that I see it as granting me the power to work through difficult situations.

Busy Circuit

A recurring dream of mine is that I am trying to call home, and either I can't see the numbers to punch, or can't get the number right, or the phone is busy. The dream always has a slightly foggy, unsettled feeling.

Off Season

A friend asked me to do a painting about waiting. I made all sorts of elaborate sketches, and these guys were in the background of one of them. I finally gave up of the topic; none of the sketches worked. But I liked these men and painted them. We decided that this image worked for the topic after all.
