More MEEC part 3
Janet Olney Lasley made this lovely mixed media work called "Purple Sky, Purple Pond." She used fabric as well as paint in order to make it come alive.
The portion at lower right is very dimensional and sticks out from the face of the canvas.
This is Chris Bohmer Stewart's "Winter Solstice." While another piece of fiber art, she also composed a poem to go with it.
Candles processing through the snow
up slopes of dark woods
to the bonfire
at the edge of the prairie
A pale solstice dawn
Point of balance
between the cold sleep of winter
and the colors of Light
Restore us, we pray.
Renew and rejoice.

Restoration...not just of the pairies, but of ourselves. What fullness of restoration comes when we work to restore what man has destroyed? In all things. Lisa.
