The ROBINS Graphite | 42” x 48” | 2015 (part of BALDERDASH BFA Exhibition)

Excerpt from story: She spread the amethysts around her in a circle like the sun, making sure to stay center in it. She attempted her best robin birdcall, and then calmly waited for the birds to collect and sit on the cable lines near her complex, and soon they did.  She began to hum songs that reminded her of spring and summer, and sent these melodies and vibrations to power the amethysts. The gems glowed softly, and the birds began to sing their own song and grow in size and strength. The girl finished the ritual, knowing the robins were now fully prepared to carry in the spring air.
