inspired by reading

I just finished reading the newest biography by Shirley Jackson,
Shirley Jackson, A Rather Haunted Woman by Ruth Franklin - a true inspiration.
Jackson was best known for her short story, The Lottery but she was so much more than that-
she had a tremendous range in her writing and I glad there is a renewed interest in her work.
This most recent collage was inspired by one of Jackson's quotes.

working with what you find

I was looking for another creature in my collage materials,
didn't find what I was looking for but did get inspired!

gotta keep going...


goodbye 2016

So many awful things happened to America in 2016,
I hope we can survive and make
a comeback to decency


American Death.
