1986 Pen and ink
This finely detailed pen line drawing of deep colors brings out the depth of the image, presenting both a whimsical feel in contrast to a deep hidden mystery. My fascination with combining the female form with nature is symbolic of the deep and hidden mystery found in the communion, the oneness I feel to nature. The mystery is hidden from our 5 senses but is felt intuitively through an inner stillness and peace.
