You never know how you touch another person, but this time I was gifted back.
Karen came to the studio in Portland and brought us this lovely orchid.
She was dying of cancer, and the Buddha became an important part of her rituals;
she wore it until she died, and we talked a lot that day about death and where she was headed and all the things you can talk about when relative strangers,
art friends, decide to go deep in a moment.
We think of her every time the orchid blooms, and that day’s sharing.
I also tried mixing ink-painting and watercolor, with mixed results….
I think I need to have another go at this!
