riginally created for eima Mars’s holiday issue of The oo, the image is now used on a holiday greeting card. I painted
gesso on a magaine cover and mainly used ink and pastel to create this piece, along with some collage. The sparkly jewelry is
cut from magaine scrap (  2 22.  . cm).

This was inspired by a story about a woman who disappears after swimming in the ocean. Its mainly pastel, with acrylic,
created on an already printed (2  . .  2. cm) archival print that had an eerie blueblack abstract background.
I painted an acrylic wash over the dark surface, let it dry, and used mainly pastel for the images. The moon on both pieces
is from collage scrap of a photo of the moon that captured the glow better than I felt I could.

hould you add a title to your nished piece here are dierent opinions
on this. ome will tell you that adding a title to your piece is too suggestive
and doesn’t let the viewers make up their mind about what the piece
means.  nd that adding a title completes the story for me and have
often had viewers tell me they like having a title for guidance.
