In Storm Warning, left, I reflected on the stories of Floridians affected in 2004 by a stormy summer of hurricanes, starting with Charlie. Lives were upended, people uprooted, and yet, folks survived and moved on.
In Aftermath (left, below) completed this past week, I reflected on the stories of unspeakable loss and the tenacious endurance of hundreds of thousands of Haitians and the compassion of millions more who came to their aid. There is indeed light at the end of every tunnel and we are truly never alone in the world: we have one another.

In this piece I went back to my fabric collection and for some reason was drawn to an embroidered fabric, a remnant from when I had my dining room chairs re-covered. I combined it with a screen printed fabric from a great little store in Madrid, NM. I tried to locate the store again and found it had closed. The person I spoke with did not know where the former owners had gone. I would love to get more of this fabric, randomly printed with lizards, birds, horses, frogs, etc. In this piece, I've forced the relationship between the two divergent fabrics, creating one piece, then further forced the relationship between the fabric and the painting. It reminded me of the blending of two (or more) very different objects into one, thus the title "Fusion." This piece, to me, fuses.
