My artwork has usually focused on figurative imagery, but in 2020, I began to move into a very different kind of work. The Jewish Artists' Lab in which I have participated for many years began to explore the topic of global warming.  We explore Jewish texts related to this topic and at the end of the year participate in an exhibition of our work. Each of us has one piece in the show. You can see my work from prior years at the Artists' Lab link to the left.

I'll have many works to choose from for the exhibition. I began developing work and never stopped. Much of my work relates to trees which have rather figurative elements so are perhaps not that much of a change from my human figurative work. It is a rich topic and as my engine is research, I absorb a lot of information as I create artwork.

As part of this work, I did a series of small 12"x12" collages that speak to different aspects of global warming. Whenever some image intrigues me, I do a search on what grim fate awaits it from global warming. It is a constant reminder of how pervasive it is.

In 2021 the Artists' Lab which started me on this journey had a theme of Brokenness and Wholeness. That led to more work with trees and other elements in nature which became metaphors for larger themes.
