Collection: Nancy Green

Desert beauty catching breath
meandering arroyo inviting journey
cactus blossom embodying fragility
hummingbird nest offering haven

Heart and mind sing in response

To capture that song
through color, mark, texture
layers of paint, ink, pigment, wax
smoothed down, scraped away
built up and eroded, geology in miniature
simplifying the complex, seeking essence

The past reflected in the present
the inner reflected in the outer
the hidden made evident
the evident, hidden

In the end, parts come together as whole
buried subtleties and mysteries
supporting and deepening the finished surface
