Roots 32” x 22”, acrylic on maple panel wood, 2013
I made this painting in January after just moving into our little cottage under the redwoods (CA). I decided to establish our roots by first painting some of the things I found in my yard. Ferns, salamanders, lichen, oxalis, banana slugs, and the Varied Thrush whom just visits for the winter. My husband and I discovered a pond in the basement a long with some termite’s (yikes)! So we are the little wet salamanders and the baby salamander is our daughter Tesia. There are also some tiny termite’s hiding in this painting naturally…
