DRAWING IN CIRCLES…

While sitting inside the Heart Circles at the winter gathering of Radical Faeries at Breitnbush Hot Springs in the mountains of Oregon last weekend I made this drawing in the round book I have shared in an earlier post.

The Kiva… My First Studio

I recently treated myself to a new scanner which allows me to begin making digital copies from my 35mm slide collection, of which there are several thousand images, many snapshots of people & places, but more importantly those which document the work, mostly as jewelry produced in my studios during the last four decades of the last century.  The desire to view & share all those images without setting up a screen & projector long ago identified the need to bring my…

TIME OF ANCIENT SPIDERS…

This view of Tahoma, wearing one of her lovely hats, distracted me from the garden on a recent evening. I’d been photographing the sedum blooms ripening from a rich pink toward their autumnal bronze coloration under a Lacinata kale in the lowering light. [Remember… you may double click to enlarge photos.] I love this season for the appearance of a rich plethora of resilient webbing spun by the maturing hunger of a…
