Interwoven 2021

The painting that we see

Is not the painting that the artist knows.

How could it be?

It it is the most recent petal, not the flower.

We cannot see the iterations

Beneath its shimmering face

Or know the force that grew it here.

Jon Fagerson

As 2021 continued to unfold in waves of collective uncertainty, I continued to cut old and new watercolor paintings into strips and weave them or integrate them into new possibilities.

It felt like a good way to participate in the massive remaking of our common ground, trusting God’s amazing grace is at work in all we experience.
