Salut! to a New Year

Updated: 5 days ago

In Florida a few weeks ago, I watched a great blue heron poised in a pond, one leg up, neck outstretched, waiting in perfect stillness for a fish to swim by. Against an impossibly blue sky, the origami shape of a white egret barely moved a feather as it glided across the horizon. Wings spread wide, a steely anhinga perched on a pier for hours, as quiet as a sculpture.

I love the beauty, stillness and serenity of the birds. The women and girls in my latest works are very self-contained, serene, at home in their environment, much like the birds circling overhead.
