Summer 2018 Newsletter – Life Sized Eggs & Flowing Basalt: My Summer Vacation

In The Studio

During June I had an art-inspiring trip to Europe with my dear artist friend Nancy Johnson. We saw Antonio Gaudi’s architecture, Joan Miro’s and Salvador Dali’s art in Spain; Elaine Goodwin’s exquisite Galerie d’Art in Burgundy (Couche) France, and attended Art Basel in Switzerland. It was a panoply of colors, textures, and shapes from which new ideas have started evolving. My focus since returning has been to continue experimenting on-edge. I’ve finished a couple of small pieces with several others in production.

Pebbles V: Path of Perseverance
Waves VI: Underlying Currents

I’m still drawing inspiration from some of my favorite parts of the trip.

Looking down the spiral staircase at Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia; Dali’s obsession with eggs made for a fun photo op; Elaine Goodwin, Susan Judy, and Nancy Johnson at Galerie d’Art in Couche in from of Elaine’s “Outre Lumiere,” photo by Pam Peevy Bruetsch; Enjoying Carlos Cruz-Deiz’s “Translucent Chrominterferent”; The flow in this basalt sculpture by Loris Gréaud really caught my eye. It has strong visual and geologic implications.
