Night Garden by the Light of the Fireflies
Unique Cast Bronze, Patina, Encaustic on Birch, 30”x 24” x 5”, 2022
The garden in the summer nights is a place of magic. The fireflies fill the air with their warm yellow glow. I am transported to another time, one where you would run after the glow with amazement trying to capture the rings of light in a glass jar. We would put holes for air and watch for hours as they would bling on and off all while lying in the thick summer grass. As the night came to a close and our beds would beckon us to come, we would open the jars and watch as the magic light would fly away. It is in those moments that time in the night garden was frozen, and we ourselves were magic.
