"Black & White & Red all Over"
16 1/4" x 28"
Part of the challenge for me was a personal challenge to use the magic product that makes the bumps on the black & white check.
14" x 11"
I wanted to show the stark whites of winter. The tree was made several years ago in Suzanne Schmidt's studio.

"Dance of the Black Swan"
I was inspired by the dance performed by Miss California. When I saw how she turned her body, I grabbed a pencil and sketched her body movements. She was dancing the Black Swan.
