Walk with the angels
While touching the earth
Let miracles surround you, gently
Like mist
On a winter path
That leads to spring

  The first of many photomontages!
This composite image was created for Fairewood's 1999 Holiday card.
All images included are from Amy's photographs except where noted*:
Middle Path - from Kenyon College (Amy's alma mater)
Angel - from an architectural detail in England
Caryatid - from the Seminary at Forest Glen (Save our Seminary!)
Walking figure* - coutesy of Vickie Donovan
(from Vickie's photography on Amy's second solo piano album Bittersweet.)

 



Art Guitars

Guitars, the perfect folk art canvas.
These are the first in a planned series of Art Guitars.
(Please rest assured, these instruments were already well beyond repair
before Amy gave them this second life)

Amy has often dreamed of creating enough mosaic guitars and other pieces to
 display at a small art showing, perhaps accompanied by a concert. Wouldn't that be sweet?

Amy has been busy gathering canvases and playful tesserae over the last decade or two
with this dream in mind. (Thanks to the many friends who have contributed!)

She is so happy to be working on this project, at last.
