I am very pleased to be a part of this show, there are always interesting interpretations of ICON.  Lynn asked that we each send a statement why our work "says ICON" for us. Here's what I answered for my two works.  Harmony depicts the female spirit that dwells in the forest and sustains all that inhabits it. The feminine spirit is an ICON. Under Scrutiny is the feminine watching over the forest which is her domain. The forest as feminine is an ICON.  Please consider voting for my work for the people's Choice Award! 
As always, thank you for taking the time to read about my work.   Art can keep your spirits up and put a smile on your face.  Stay well and support your local artist!
