When will they get it right?
A unique Casein print (20" x 27"), printed from a glass plate - inspired by Hokusai's print of the Great Wave (1831)
Earthquakes and tsunami are a humbling and horrible reminder that latent forces are always imperceptibly building beneath us - that it is nature's way of renewal over which we have no control. (Japan is now 8ft closer to California). Nuclear Power is mankind's answer to a greener renewal, and it should be within our power to avert a collision between the two events. There are said to be 104 power plants soon to be going on line (23 of which have been built) in the United States. Is Homeland Security doing enough to prevent building plants in someone's backyard, I wonder. But, first, Japan To The Rescue!
Below is thought to be a print by Hokusai, (b. in 1760 - pages from a note book) perhaps alluding to another catastrophic earthquake, of which Japan has suffered many.

Solar print of a woodcut by Margaret Gosden
My actor, playwright friend, in Australia, took one of my prints and wrote a verse for each of the four ways it could be viewed, thereby changing the original concept, changing
the scene. Here is what she wrote for this view:
The row-boat was where they had left it,
Beached by a rising tide.
By storms it was battered and broken,
An outcast, it lay on its side.
But the seagulls flew from the ocean
To wish it one last goodbye,
And the old boat rocked to the motion
Of sand and sea and sky.

GROWING UP THROUGH THE SNOW IN A WASHINGTON DC TOWN HOUSE GARDEN...
Celebrating International Women's Day, March 8, 2011
WHOSE PURPLY RED FLOWERS USUALLY WELCOME SPRING; IT WAS BROUGHT T0 ME TWO WEEKS AGO BY A FRIEND (WHEN THE TEMPERATURE WAS 20 DEGREES), AND IS STILL SURVIVING (with three accompanying buds shrouded by its leaves), despite the fact that, to last indoors, the cutting was not plunged into nearly boiling water! A tip that Vita Sackville West of Sissinghurst Garden fame, was so informed by a reader! Vita was born on March 9, 1892. She died June 2, 1962. FOR MORE ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL GARDEN IN ENGLAND'S KENT READ:

This long shadow stretched across a busy intersection - forget about getting a shot that was continuous and pure!
An uninterrupted long shot, no way!

This kind of threesome I saw about 10 months ago - no, they are not the same ones - but I am fascinated about how the dog is loaded, too. Are they travelers, or are they homeless? One has to wonder about their adventures on the road!

From a series of multicoloured woodcut monotype prints, Impressions of 'TO THE LIGHTHOUSE', by Virginia Woolf. Back in the 1980s I studied the life and work of Virginia Woolf which resulted in my creating about 25 different impressions of the novel. The multi-layering of colours and images was inspired by the rhythmic and poetic style of Woolf's prose recalling memories of family summers spent in St. Ive's, Cornwall, in Great Britain. It was her plan, also, for the reader to be aware of the sound of the waves throughout the novel.
