The Deconstructor:  Honorable Mention

The DeconstructorThe Deconstructor 2024 Honorable Mention April Visual Art League of LewisvilleShe had an innocent demeanor. Always smiling, wagging that shaggy tail that knocked over soda sitting on the coffee table. She was a proud one, always finding things and presenting them to me as a present. I would wince, accepting the fragments of some lost item. She would politely hand them over, looking for a pat on the head. But, she broke my heart the day she presented me with the cardinal I had been feeding

Horizons Solo Exhibit

 

It is with tremendous gratitude that I share my latest exhibit. Invited by the Horizons Unitarian Church in Carrollton, Texas to present over 30 pieces in their facility. The people of Horizons have been most generous and supportive as I prepared this exhibit.

I have chosen a variety of work styles beginning with my work in photography, to enhanced photography and migrating to my more advanced digital work. A few of these pieces have incorporated some of my early watercolor experiments.

It is so fulfilling to be able to share my work with the lovely people of Horizons. The facility is open to the public. The hours are flexible but limited due to Covid and the number of people present at any given time is restricted. Please bring your mask if you plan to visit.

Horizons Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 1641 W Hebron Pkwy, Carrollton, TX 75010. To call for hours the number is (972) 492-4940.

Leaving It All BehindLeaving It All BehindDo you ever tire of carrying all that baggage? Where does it come from? Well, some comes from our childhood. The well-intended corrections of our parents later become the bulky reminders we carry for life. And what about those personal expectations – the perfect house the perfect life that we post on Instagram.
Then there is the trunk I carry around. Stuff I have picked up along the way. Willingly, I carry around the weight of my self-imposed self-improvements. How heavy that baggage becomes.
Maybe it is time to Leave It All Behind.
