The Pool of Time

(early experiments with my photography using Photoshop) There is a rerun on Netflix of an old television series called “Friday Night Lights” about football games played in a small town; the dramas around the coach, his family, high school teenagers, and others in the community.  It seems so familiar to the way I grew up.Continue reading “The Pool of Time”

Isolation

Back in March when isolation really began for the Pandemic, I had been visiting my husband in a nursing home almost every day.  When visiting became a threat to the safety of the residents, I could no longer visit, except to wave at him from a distance, or see him through the glass window inContinue reading “Isolation”

Rabbit Emotions

Are you ready to see more Rabbit Art?  I looked over my collection and decided that some of them are very appropriate to the times.  RABBIT RAGE isn’t a very nice painting, but it may convey some of what I feel about the man who has been furiously tweeting from the white house for theContinue reading “Rabbit Emotions”

Rabbits and Bunnies

I refuse to be labeled as “the rabbit artist”, but that’s what I have become. I hate cutesy objects, and yet, I must have been drawn, for some unknown reason, to the little child’s bunny pull-toy at the estate sale. Furthermore, why did I choose the larger rabbit holding the pail and carrot, with thatContinue reading “Rabbits and Bunnies”

Guns, Guns, and more Guns

One morning, while driving to visit my husband at the nursing home, I noticed a huge crowd at the Civic Center.  Cars had filled both parking lots and spilled over into adjacent fields and on to the streets.  I looked at the marquee which read:  “GUN SHOW.”  I slowed down and noticed a man withContinue reading “Guns, Guns, and more Guns”

The Gulf War

Hidden away in the corner of my studio is a large Plexiglas cube with a gas mask inside. To explain about this artwork, one has to look back to the first President Bush and the first Gulf War, called “Operation Desert Storm”. After Iraq invaded Kuwait, a coalition of countries and the United States, invadedContinue reading “The Gulf War”

Cigar Box Assemblages

There’s something about a box.  My grandmother from Mississippi loved to send packages.  It was so exciting to open it and see what she had sewn for me and my sister.  I remember matching outfits in yellow for Easter.  She even made hats for us from the parachute her son had used in World WarContinue reading “Cigar Box Assemblages”

In-Closures

Art Museum Installation by Grace Leal and Nancy Seib The Brevard Art Museum invited my friend, Grace, and me to do a collaborative installation.   We were excited about it and brain-stormed for weeks, but there seemed to be no merging of minds.  We finally came to the conclusion that we were two (too) strong artistsContinue reading “In-Closures”

UNIVERSE of the MIND

Many artists depend on the “magic to happen” when they work, but I have always let my conscious mind get into the act, way too early.  I often start with a pre-conceived idea and then I try to find a way to work toward that idea.  This often leads to something closer to an illustrationContinue reading “UNIVERSE of the MIND”
