I just finished a commission for a great family here in Bowling Green. Both are professors at our local University. We bumped into each other over the years through mutual interests in art, music, and local foods. Then they had the cutest baby boy! Recently M and I discovered we both were graduates of Kresge College at UC Santa Cruz and shared a passion for the ocean in all her moods. Here is the finished commission embodying our shared love: layers of Indigo, weld, and coreopsis dyes on rust dyed silk, sealed with cold wax medium. My title “Covid Cruise” honors our time in self- isolation.
