Zola stamp and Leaf collage

Zola 2016, collage, 5 x 5 inches

In early summer, my local second-hand shop had stamp collections on sale. I purchased a couple of them and have started to use them in collage and paintings.

The above collage, Zola 2016,  has a background of gesso, acrylics, a collage of a Émile Zola stamp and a Japanese book page, and a pattern with one of my linocuts to add a soft vertical line. I used a leaf and acrylics to print the leaf, then added color with washes of watercolor.

If you ask me what I came to do in this world,
I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.

the conversation

Use your voice.
Pen your thoughts.

Talk to your neighbor.
Talk to your co-worker.
Hear out their perspectives.

Seek and Start the conversation.

I cannot sit quietly.

I cannot sit quietly.
I am restless and I am anxious for our future.

The struggle to become a nation that guarantees its citizens equality, individual liberties and justice
- that struggle continues and even more so now.
