"Standing on the edge
of the flowing stream of my Life-
At the end of Us.
Caught between two worlds
both reaching as One watches-
The last series of watercolors I did was in 2002!!! It was for a book of illustrated haiku called "Unsettled Remains". At the time, and for several years previous to that, I felt torn into pieces by the circumstances that I had created in my life. I was not able to sleep(a one time experience for me). I would get up at 4am and work on this project until I left for work at 9 or so. It was my first experience with working on a computer at all. The images, though, were completely hand done original watercolors, not manipulated at all on computer. At the time I did not want to do anything on the computer, I was too much in love with the materials themselves, the paint, papers, canvasses etc.
Another series of watercolors I did were inspired by my trips to Joshua Tree. The people trapped inside the rocks were everywhere evident. The place is one of my favorite anywhere.
There were the most unusual formations, one's imagination could have a rest because the real landscapes were far more creative than my mind's.
This piece was part of the book of Haiku and also inspired by Joshua Tree. "Heaven and Earth are dreamt as One world- Enlightened...by Sitting in Peace."
