May this threshold marking Northern Hemisphere darkness be rich and restful for you.


2015 – sermon notes (below) from The Rev. Mark Hanson at Redeemer Lutheran Church in North Minneapolis





The painting is inspired by the Grunewald Guild’s art installation called the Finisterre, a vision of Guild Founder Rich Caemmerer. Also in the painting is the rock that honors Rich. I never met Rich in person… and I so wish I had.

“So much of the beauty, so much of what propels our pursuit of truth, stems from the invisible connections — between ideas, between disciplines, between the denizens of a particular time and a particular place, between the interior world of each pioneer and the mark they leave on the cave walls of culture, between faint figures who pass each other in the nocturne before the torchlight of a revolution lights the new day, with little more than a half-nod of kinship and a match to change hands.” —María Popova, Figuring

O Radiant Lens,
Amplifier of Beauty,
Be our meeting place.

“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?

A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
