Beth Cavener Stichter

My colleague and friend Donna Stallard introduced me to Cavener Stichter's works this week.  I have been meditating on the connection between my studio practice and my contact with the shelter dogs, hoping to understand how they sync up - wary of the animal motif.  Et voil√°, Beth Cavener Stichter found a way.  There is so much feeling here - not just the depiction of feeling.  And an acknowledgment that we are animal.

Our sweet bunny just died :( Too strange to find these bunnies right after we found HIM. Bunny threads are stringing my moments, apparently.

Aw, hey, I'm sorry to hear that your bunny has moved on - bunny threads. . .
