For the past 18 months, I have been working on a new series of women titled "A Silent Opera of Nine Women". This morning as I was reading and having my morning tea, the sun finally decided to show through the clouds of Humboldt County and through the redwood trees, bringing light to "Moon Rider - Right After Lunch". The series has been cast in resin and will eventually go to bronze, I will be updating the blog with views of the "Silent Opera" women. I have continued in the motif of the fullness of the feminine form.
On the subject of Light–
Light is energy, consciousness, truth, and reality, all there IS! All differences become washed in light. For what quantum phenomenon can say–you are black and you over there are yellow and I am white and some are red and even blue or green – and this makes a difference or the truth of anything?

People often ask me why I don’t sculpt men, I am a woman, I know what it is to be a woman, I am in a woman’s body with all of it’s soft feminine fleshiness. Perhaps someday I will sculpt men, but it will have to be from observation.
Women are in fact a series of spheres covered with fatty tissue and skin, be we young or old. To be celebrated! Best we don’t try to figure WOMEN out. I ask you to simply allow the sphere to further inform your sensitivities of the bronze sculptures.
There are different responses from men. They are often silent, perhaps feeling caught in the moment enjoying a woman's body, whereas women will often explode with delight, expressing their joy at having their fullness documented for all to enjoy.
But most of all, they are fine bronze art sculptures.
