Travel has been quiet during the pandemic. These works on paper in the medium of pastels have abstract and realistic qualities at the same time. We can go in our mind to the places we have traveled before but now dare not. Visual memories of reflections, color, sounds and smell are present in areas of texture light and dark.  Look deep and see the black beneath the color —,symbolic of the richness of daily life. It’s simply the graceful moments that leave us unaware of the impermanence that haunts us all. These works are dedicated to the people of India. May they help to reduce their suffering in some small way for all beings.
