These images come to life intuitively in dialogue with my feelings and thoughts.

The USPS project stretches me in new ways each time. When I received Sean's lovely, delicate watercolor
with a resist drawing of a figure, I felt reluctant
to add anything as my emotions were stretched
by current events. Then it dawned on me that
the figure drawing was the crack thru which light poured out. Our collective cells breaking apart and fusing so we can see the same light shining thru us all.
So we stand together. Even the tragic story about
the senseless killing of a pregnant elephant in Kerala made its way into this image. She too is a part of us.

What a lovely exchange for so many artists!
A friend commented that my image felt like a boat caught in a storm - an allegory to the current situation - mankind devastated by a pandemic. That idea
may have permeated subconsciously, yet I wonder
if the human figure is harnessing new ways of being,
even as the storm rages...
Watercolor and Pencil
I had a title picked out but my sister @veena.agnihotri.75 had the perfect one
‘Creeping Acquisitions’. Certainly looks like
a gathering of a storm full of things.
Sometimes while playing on my digital art apps,
I happen upon the perfect tool/brush that expresses something I have felt like exploring. Soft curves
and lines that fade and re-emerge from a foggy ether. Like the energy of strands of thoughts.
