Because!

Two or three days into my playing with this line-and-pastel exploration, which I'd affectionately given the working title Mediocre, a friend posed the following question, a question offered up with a quizzical face and genuine curiosity: Why do you keep working on that piece—why don't you just start something new?

Well, because!

Because I never know when or how I will find myself in awe, but I almost always do. Either en route or in the end. Or both.

Each tile in each mosaic in this series feels like a place to me, a lush landscape. Each place beckons.

I enter.

Awe.

  1. We who make art are SO lucky! That place of awe that shows up sometimes out of nowhere attests to that. Every day, everything is possible. Lucky Emmy and lucky you!
