(time out of time series)

painting 2005 Mara Berendt Friedman

acrylic on canvas, 11 x 14 in.


One winter on New Years, a big storm visited the woods of Oregon where I live. We were snowed in for days and this 'time out of time' brought our neighbors together in a beautiful way. Without the distractions of internet, TV, phone, electricity... we were encouraged to discover other ways to BE. We shared stories, meals, fires, games and in doing so, knitted a strong and supportive community that has endured over the years. This painting was inspired by this experience. She sleeps in winter's silver womb and holds within her the promise of green spring to come. Hummingbird whispers in her heart... "There is hope! Trust in love!"
