Forsythia, 12×12, oil on wood panel

Water, 12×12 inches – Oil on wood

No. 2 Pencils, 12×12, oil on wood
A pencil makes its mark by leaving a trail of graphite on paper. The first pencil was a stylus used for scratching wax tablets and before that making marks in clay. When a huge deposit of graphite was discovered in England during the 1500s people confused the material for lead. We still refer to the graphite as lead some 500 years later.
Pincushion, 12×12 inches, oil on wood
This iconic image represents feminism to me. One popular design—a tomato with a strawberry attached—was possibly introduced during the Victorian Era. According to folklore, placing a tomato on the mantel of a new house guaranteed prosperity and repelled evil spirits. If tomatoes were out of season, families improvised by using a round ball of red fabric filled with sand or sawdust. The good-luck symbol also served a practical purpose—a place to store pins. The strawberry contains sand to clean and sharpen needles. It is a universal symbol of womanhood.
