Recently, I’ve been doing a bit of time travelling, reviewing old journals and faded slides. For this video, I used images that my husband and I had taken on a trip by freighter to exotic Morocco in 1976.

Highlights include Casablanca, Marrakesh, the Todra Gorge, Meknes, the Roman Ruins of Volubilis, the imperial cities of Fez and Rabat, and the Chellah Necropolis.

Hope you enjoy stepping back in time with me.

My Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after surviving five cardiac arrests in 2011.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
