walnut rectangles
speak up and become
grain explains a bird


This Christmas I received a wonderful present of rectangular black walnut blocks from my friend in North Carolina, Mike Smith. In previous work, I had painted on small birch rectangles. These had a very different presence from the new walnut blocks. The black walnut is full of grain, texture and knots. It is soft and can be carved into with an x-acto knife.

I started to see different images and stories within the blocks. I study each piece until I see an image and then I paint the negative space using white gesso or acrylic. Birds, oceans, still lifes, views outside my window - they all appear on the wood.
