We went with our African drums in hand to celebrate the Winter Solstice in Pescadero at the beach. It was an amazing full moon, a wonderful group of people, energy vibrating around the circle and the roaring fire. A little bit before midnight (our local time) the eclipse began, slowly covering the moon with an orange globe. AMAZING!
Having a bunch of discarded material sometimes becomes handy, like the other night when we realized that we did not have enough light above our table to see what we were eating. So I found a piece of re-bar from my studio, and wrapped around bubble lights added a cord, wire a few screws and voila... we have a little more light were we need it.
Las pastorelas son unas de las costumbres mas hermosas de mi país. En Diciembre los niños de ls escuelas en nuestro pueblito Todos Santos los ninõs se visten representando a la Vírgen María y a San José y a muchos peregrinos que los acompañan. Paran y cantan "Pidiendo Posada" en muchos de los establecimientos en el pueblo.
In this series I used photography as the primary medium combined with found objects, and encaustic. The encaustic wax medium allows me to work in layers encasing fragments of memory as a means of stopping images and words in time. Of great importance to me is the “female” and discovering the similar dualities found in the female entity and in the desert planes.

The exhibition Roses of the Desert opened on December 12th at Galeria de Todos Santos with a great reception. It is a climatic event, after months of development and creation of the pieces. It was very meaningful to celebrate with a wall to wall gallery full of people. To see the full exhibition please copy and paste these links on your browser window.
Roses of the Desert Series
Saturday, December 11, 2010
Michael Cope, owner of the Galería de Todos Santos came to review the work yesterday and now the 24 pieces have been delivered to the gallery. The studio is empty. As I walked around it for the last time before I took the work I came to realize how intimately I had lived with those pieces of art. The women represented in these series, their eyes and their souls accompanied me for many days as a communal circle.

Even though the series I have been working on, "Roses of the Desert" has taken the better part of a year, 11 days before the show there are thousands of things to be done, and great new ideas that I am trying hard to cram in as well.
