fresco_cliffs

A detail of my fresco painting of coastal a cliff, Sonoma County CA– in progress.

Natural pigments on a fresco secco panel made of burlap and plaster.

The striations of color and patterns of erosion, horizontal planes turned to vertical: to a geologist these cliffs tell a story… actually shout. Luckily I asked. The earth is moving! and nothing shifts perspective like geologic time.

I’ll share an illustration soon, of a microscopic hydra…. somersaulting.
