The Oriental influence in this series of work has grown out of a tragic and intense ending to 2017. These works have helped me to focus on the simplicity of thought that is so much a part of my creativity. And although the complexity of layers is present the overall feeling is peaceful. The images in this work, the vases, represent the 3 lines of haiku. The 17 strands represent the 5 7 5 syllables of haiku.
