Sharing a fun part of my life in the 90's, working with sand in a physical way.
I translated my language into sand so that I could use it in a performance type setting. Both spiritual and colorful it expressed so much.
Sand became my spiritual connection between self and place. LA, Chicago, San Diego . San Diego began with stars, I will leave with "Art-In A-Bag"
My Abstract Desert Landscape.
The Blue Rocket Spirit Express is set for landing January 2018
Florida, USA. Where my new journey begins.
This past summer I created a zen garden at the pool in my complex. It was Abstract Desert Landscape.
From that landscape I have harvested seeds to sell.
The Zen Garden Seeds Catalog contains words symbols and emotions first invoked during the planting in the garden. Next Season I will be in a new location but still on line during the transition. While My life is utterly changing right now these are the first seeds of that transformation. See What they have grown into.
These are some of the things these seeds have grown into.
You will begin to (see) understand the thought that goes into each small piece of art. Color is something very close to my spirit-life force expression. Sometimes words become the fruit from the seeds .A dialog of wisdom understanding experience and creativity grow from these seeds. An individual expression in the garden of life, where color becomes an independent Voice of this shared universe. From one to the many art heals guides gives and reflects change from within.
