Each of the drawings in this series - arrowhead rock - includes an enlarged shape-shifted version of the same small found stone featuring it's unusual fossil in the shape of an arrowhead. These pieces celebrate the results of what dramatic natural processes - floods, volcanoes, ice ages - have created and with those, some of the possible explorations and alterations produced by art making processes. Whimsically presenting my own version of transformation, arrowhead rock and its fossil morph variously into a winged creature, a mountain, a cloud and a river delta or the big green leaves of imagined underwater plants. Each mixed media piece alludes to the creative thinking by also including representations of the actual size and shape of the original inspiration in fanciful configurations.
