New Work, New Colors!

 Deb found color at her CGU Studio

Don't get me wrong she still is working in shades of grey, though California living has flooded her palette.   Cyan is happy about the change as well, so happy that she lends mommy a hand any chance she gets.

Deb has been exploring new surfaces as along with new media.  She hopes to push her explorations much further.  Grad school has come with its challenges, but Deb feels extremely blessed to be at CGU.  

Claremont is home to Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens; which is a great source of inspiration, showcasing many native trees.  Deb enjoys spending time among the Oak trees, some of which are many hundred years old.

Back to the West Coast

Well its been a long time coming but the day is finally here.  Deb is headed to California for Graduate school.  Cyan has logged several traveling hours this past month and is ready for the flight and the adventures  that will follow.  Deb will be working on a new body of work and on a new & fun surface.  

Attention Tree lovers: In this post you can see several of the reference photos deb will be using and links to more fun tree photos.  Please do not distribute these photos but feel free to print the images for personal use.  Most of these images are of Deb's Midwest Friends, check back for new tree friends and a plethora of Palms.

New Adventures

Deb is off to California again, this time she will be returning as a graduate student. She was accepted to Claremont Graduate University for the past two years. She ran into a beautiful baby bump last year and now is on her way to Graduate school this summer. There is a three hundred year old oak right in the near by botanical garden that I'm sure she will make friends with.

New website! My work is a secret world hidden among the gathering dusk under the trees. Cool evenings after a hot day or a quiet place in the afternoon...

One ending another begining

So before we sent out the prints, we hit a little bump. A baby bump! So there is going to be another Correa on the way. 4/5/2011 We just heard the little heart beating today (during our second check up). If Josh's dad has his way we will have a little baby girl...

A journey's end

Flying back to Ohio I reflected that a week ago I just beginning our 2,000 mile journey. Not only did we cover a lot of ground, but we also saw some amazing sights; the daily glimpse of the Cascade mountains in Seattle; the misty pine covered hills of Oregon where fog blotted out the border between land, sky and ocean; moss covered maples overhanging our road; gigantic trees dwarfing all who aspire to stand beside them; waves crashing on sheer cliffs; sea lions, elephant seals, ground squirrels and elk.. I saw firsthand how the abundance or lack of water, sun and wind can shape an environment, and I saw firsthand the amazing creativity of our Creator in the variety of organisms that make a home in every environment.

When I returned to Ohio I had a mountain of work to do; finishing drawings then printing each of my nine drawings 25 times. (That's 225+ prints all by hand!) I compiled the prints in a hanging installation for the Cultivating Growth show. The prints were hung in descending order from North to South. Thank you to all those who believed in me and pre-bought prints of the trees without seeing them. I hope you enjoy them even more knowing a little bit about them.

This trip encouraged me to pursue my creative goals. I gained confidence in my work and am currently applying to graduate school to get a Masters in Art. I am looking forward to many more road trips of this kind all over the US and eventually internationally!

I hope you enjoyed reading about our journey and most of all I hope you are encouraged to go have an adventure of your own! Thanks for reading :)
