This painting tries to capture a sense of “in the beginning” at the cross section of meaning “the Word,” and as the start of life on earth as well.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    This speaks to me. I love this monoprint. I have been thinking a lot about this time in our world and new beginnings and what The Beginning was. The color in the print makes me ponder – Did we become from the pond of life? and what our humanity has done to that pond. My Christian faith says to be an example of Christ. That’s the best I can do. Heaven knows the rest.
    Love your work, Polly.
