Mountains of my Life: Detail 3


Epoxy and cardboard on Birchbark        2016

A volcano becomes an island of forests,
in the middle of a mighty river.
Home of the Mohawk (Haudenosaunee)
Then the Holy settlement of Ville-Marie,
Mount Royal,
Montreal my city of français and english
and now the nations of the world come to us.

Atop Lyon mountain, a watch tower
To look across the valleys for fire and call out a warning
I took a warning in my soul.

On life’s journey in this delicate vessel
With my Jeannie before me
Across the lake to Parson’s Knob.

Mountains of my Life


Acrylic, Epoxy, Cardboard, Metal, Glass, and China on Birchbark on Plywood

81 x 46 inches              2016            nfs

This is one solid piece of Birchbark found in the woods by my friend Libby.
(Thanks Libby.)
When it was glued down on the plywood it became like a map or a landscape painting.
I included small interventions to distinguish the mountains.
Details will follow.
