Holland in Winter

Birch trees silhouetted against the steel gray sky. Winter ravens watch the sheep below. The farm – a hidden shelter.

50-Year Birthday Card for My Sister

This three-dimensional card (*12″ x 12″x 24″ tall) hangs and moves on the air. The bottom part consists of images of her and me, to represent 5 past decennia, one new decennium, and a quote from a letter by my sister on time. Each decennium has a small insert of portraits – one photo of her at that time, one of mine, back-to-back. In the framing background a one-colorized enlargement of the photo in that panel.
