FAMILY AFFAIR

Family Affair (Private Collection)
Family Affair 

I am no longer selling my driftwood collages. I simply wish to share them with you. I hope you enjoy their natural beauty.

“Family Affair.” 

This piece took several days. Lots of selecting, rejecting, selecting, placing of different pieces. When it came time to glue it together and screw it together, I decided to change the background cross pieces. Everything changed! I had to add pieces spontaneously. Then, the next day I added more.

The center piece is a strangler fig I believe. It is quite interesting. The bottom left small piece of driftwood is quite nice.

Screw Pine or Polynesian Pandamus (top right – first time in 30 years I have ever found this);

A Deeper Passion

A Deeper Passion 

Several years ago, I had the colors black and red come up during a Focusing session. I don’t recall exactly what their meaning was, but a while later I wrote a poem called “A Deeper Passion” and made a paper collage to symbolize the poem. I think perhaps black symbolizes grief for me, and red, life.

Seeds: Round Monkey Comb, Sea Heart, Ox Eye, Sand Box Tree seed, Starnut palm, A. cornigera thorns, Nenes (Ormosia monosperma? Red and black seeds), red Adenanthera pavonina, and seed pods.

Invitation: Embrace your life. Honor your grieving. Release your fears. Seek your passion.
