Moonshell

Jim HardimanCreativeLeave a Comment

My recent series of artworks have been nurtured by the idea of tide and time. “Moonshell”, one of the keynote pieces of that collection, appears to be a cross section of a shell overlaid on a night sky.

The series “Primoridial Dawn” was initially inspired by the sandstone carving “Valley of the Shadow”; the four organic shapes frame the body of a sleeping infant. I was reminded of a rising yellow sun, the earth’s womb, a wavy line of water, and a sea-weed shape.

Forest or Trees?

Christene SandesonArtLeave a Comment

“Forest Trail” was inspired while trail riding through the woods. Among the masses of green and grey await naked sprites and glancing eyes. It inspires delight and inspiration and is a good metaphor about seeing.
