While struggling with the dark “Cloaked” series, I felt compelled to search for a little light. This is one of two recent pieces expressing that urge to find the light. Tomorrow, another light seeking painting.

Part 1: Ripples
New inspiration, has urged my Bird-Children to travel and to grow up. Cath Rennie, a marvelous visual artist, musician and songwriter over at Settle and Chase, has adopted a few of the winged kids along with their scary birds, and has taken them on an adventure across the pond. While the little ones were in Cath’s capable hands and environments, I had the pleasure of entertaining and transforming Cath’s babies. She graciously loaned me three of her powerful photos;Woodpile, Doll’s House and Ripples, so that I might try to compliment her photos with my Bird-People. The image above is a joining of Cath’s Ripples with my winged figure over-top.
With Ripples, I knew I wanted to celebrate the fluidity and light in the photo, so my figure waves with the fabric and light.
I enjoyed every minute of the collaborative process and I’m quite pleased to have taken the journey into Cath’s world. Take a tour of Settle and Chase and find the original photos. You’ll be very glad you did.
Part 2: Doll’s House, tomorrow
