Exploration of Artifacts
I have been a jade collector since the year 2000. I began collecting jade coins in the last few years. Some of these pieces are jade while others are near-jade. It is difficult to know the difference without a scientific analysis. These Chinese jade coins are carved with symbols from ancient dynasties.
The carved textures of the symbols on the coins and other flat pendants inspired me to do rubbings of them. I did these rubbings with colored pencils on handmade paper from India. Here is the result: a series of three mixed media pieces on 8″ x 10″ canvas.
The title of the series is Artifacts, and is for sale for $450.

Martin Luther King Marade, Denver, CO, 2015
The weather was in the 50’s today, January 19, 2015, and what a great day for the Martin Luther King Marade! Here is a short video of the drummers who sat on the corner of Colfax and York. There was a fantastic turn-out, but unfortunately because the drummers were facing the sun, they did not get any good shots of the people who were in the Marade. The drummers drummed non-stop for nearly 2 hours. Thanks to Olivia for video taping the drummers who were still going strong even at the end!
