My new series, Peace Taking Flight, was inspired simply by a bird, Cedar Waxwing, that visits the trees just outside one of our windows for only a few weeks each summer.  The beauty that birds possess in their colors and lines will be an endless source of inspiration in this series, which is a combination of oil painting and sculpture.  Oil painting has always generated a sense of peace for me, and joining that with the love of building three dimensional pieces, this series is now taking flight.
