Ripenings

Here's a picture of a new piece composed of charcoal drawings of ultrasounds on coffee filters.  I'm entering it in the juried show "Collective Singular" in Denver, CO.  There are so many things I was thinking about while I made this work that it makes it challenging to come up with a title.  For now, I am calling it "be modest now, like a thing ripened until it is real."  This comes from a lovely Rilke poem that I just "happened" upon today in "Rilke's Book of Hours: Love Poems to God."
