“Five Swans”, 11×14″, soft pastel on paper – 2020

At once both moody and hopeful, this piece demonstrates how new life and even beauty can spring up from even the most lifeless, unexpected places. A graceful group of tiny luminous mushrooms somehow sprouts up from a crinkled brown oak leaf on the forest floor.
