art fix

i was long overdue for an art fix. soon y. warren's watercolors were stunning, i liked her oils too, with her ability to show texture and light. i've never seen a clementine look so pretty! glenn downing's sculptures were fun, and his huge mixed media pieces showed a lot of emotion.

what made my heartache were the prints of the american west. the ones we weren't allowed to take photos of. they showed the rocky mountains. they depicted the land when the bison roamed before they were killed off. the land before it was tore up by manifest destiny. the native americans were strong warriors, as if they could ever be anything else.
