Care Connet — Awake

Awake — oil with clear gesso on birch panel, 19.5″ x 19.5″ (2020)

“Awake,” a wood duck seen from the back rising with wings and tail spread, is one in an ongoing series of birds of America which I call the “Alae” series. I am fascinated by the wings and tails of birds, all the variation in shapes and colors, and how they all function to allow the bird to fly.

Curving back on myself, I create again and again. Art is a personal expression of my inner awareness flowing out from my mind and heart through my eyes and hands, a meeting of spirit and matter. What intriques me ranges from what I see with my eyes – nature in its infinite variety as well as manmade objects – to geometric forms, cultural icons and images from my inner vision.
