I saw this freshly cut branch on a walk in Yachats Oregon. After spending this weekend with a tribe of vivacious, incredible women and then spending today alone in my studio with only the rain in my gutters to talk with, I feel somewhat like this exposed heart. We humans are meant to sit in circles, laugh together, eat together, link arms and walk together. What I do in my studio, I do alone. BUT, I have this potential to create things that will possibly touch or inspire another person in some future moment. Art can be communication across time and space.
