The picture below will give you an idea where the new series is going. Spirituality is always the theme in my work. Fences are appearing along with the ladders, so we shall see where this journeys. Think I need to lighten up the colors a little, as they are a bit intense. Must be an intense time in my life. Nahhhh.....

I am titling this piece, "Silencing the Mind". A special friend inspired it. She is a very spiritual, prayerful, and powerful embodiment. So, this is in honor of her.
The colors in this piece are rather unusual but I do love to push the boundaries. They work, I think, I hope...... :-).,......di

The title of my piece is "Inverno" which is Italian for winter and I celebrate the later stages in life. My figures are not elongated, nor perfection, yet they are kind and wise. I stayed with a muted color palette referencing a later stage in life and Botticelli's three graces palette. I chose not to make the women old but just more mature and less idealized. In this piece I celebrate the ties that bind, the cords that interweave, and the connection among the sisterhood.
My 'style' utilizes simple shapes, layered color, and a narrative approach. Hopefully, you can see a little of Botticelli's influence in there.
Thanks for listening.....Di
