Little Works

"Single Whip" Block Print (4x5)
Sold this original block print Saturday night.  "Single Whip" is a Tai Chi Chuan posture an is a recurring subject for me over the years. I think this posture was the first moment that I truly connected to the movement in Tai Chi when I first started practicing. The buyer was very excited about the piece and had a whole list of reasons she connected to the work. I enjoyed listening to her talk about it.

Fall Back

This is a small piece I completed last night. I've been overdue for some pastel work and finally moved some paintings around so I could have access to the easel I use when doing pastels.  My pastel work actually improved when I switched from a drawing table to standing at an easel.  Evidently, I need the freedom of movement that comes when standing...even when the piece is small.
