((Scroll right for pics)) 4 years ago, i had the pleasure of working on this massive sculpture with my friend, Lilah. It took Lilah 3 months to build the 24' x 4' structure, using styrofoam, tape and paint. Then it took us another 2 months to tediously cover the entire surface of the sculpture with delicate pieces of multi-colored tissue paper, each piece hand cut and pasted. Although this was a frustrating journey I knew that we made excellent art partners, pushing each other to our creative and physical limits. I was always inspired by her dedication and unique way of interacting with the world. She revealed to me many layers and approaches to art and life. We collaborated on a few more art projects together over the years, and at one point we even lost our friendship as well. Time passed and in our separate lives we found we were both going through a period of chaos and necessary change...we sought each other out again out of a need to care for and support each other, and it didn't take long for us to realize that we were bonded on all levels and spend our lives together 🌅"The Well of Eternal Rose House" 4' x 2' x 24' styrofoam, tape, paint, tissue paper 2014 you can follow Lilah @lilahslagerrose

Crescent Dunes Solar Project in Nevada. The mirrors all point to the top of the salt filled tower, which melts the salt at a 1000 degrees Fahrenheit and holds heat even on cloudy days so electricity can be produced at all hours. More of these solar thermal power plants are currently being built all over the world. There are plans to build a plant in Saudi Arabia in a partnership with Japan that will be 30 times the size of this Nevada plant. If a oil rich country like Saudi Arabia are planning on building massive solar plants, it's a positive sign that the world is ready to switch to renewable resources. Sometimes, I'm terrified by climate change but news like this gives me hope that many countries are ready to make the necessary change to continue life on this incredible planet. Happy Earth Day. I love you 💙
