Forest Snail

While on a summer road trip we stayed overnight at a campground with beautiful secluded spots and there I saw my first leopard slug. They are huge and this inspired my Zenwork “Forest Snail”. Snails are a symbol of steady progress in life,expanded consciousness and awareness. Green is the universal color of growth, balanced with orange’s honesty, and purple’s spiritual intent. My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to meld symbolism with abstract imagery created through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
