Artist Nancy Ortenstone, from Taos, New Mexico, posted a new work, called "Between Two Worlds," with this comment:
...a place I keep returning to. Paintings I saw in my mind's eye for years before I began painting them. It seems they are a centering, meditative space I need when there is so much unsettling uncertainty all around. How can you not respond creatively to the earth actually shifting???I keep recalling the words of our local seismologist here in Bloomington, Michael Hamburger, who gently reminds us that Indiana is overdue for a quake, too. We had a mini-quake a year or so ago that made Andreas shoot out of a dreamstate in the middle of the night, convinced that our furnace was about to explode. Such an odd sensation when the house starts to rumble.
