Rosie Powell, a San Francisco fine artist, muses about her painting of sea creatures and about life in general

These three collages use the image of white horses from a Vogue magazine fashion spread. The top one incorporates the painting of the Madonna of New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, a place very close to my heart. Painted by Leo Neufeld, it shows the Immaculate Hear of Mary, the patroness of the Hermitage. The second has a bittersweet aspect to me , combining the ancient statue in Copan and the modernizing capital of Uzbekisthan, Tashkent.. The last collage is a distillation of the sacred with nature shown in its many aspects. I was very happy to sell this collage to a friend in May; just returned from several weeks hiking in Zion National Park shown as background ,she is a Wood Horse in Chinese astrology. I have since put the image on my credit card.
