This is a crucial time in human history and the life of the planet; a time when tilting the outcome in one direction or the other is possible. —Jean Shinoda Bolen


These portraits each mark a single conversation, a special window of time set aside to consider our impact on the earth and explore what we can each do to tilt the outcome at this crucial moment.


By listening to each other we can remember that we do make a difference in the life of our planet—each seemingly small action within each imperfect life. The task can feel overwhelming but our voices together are mutually inspiring. Our conversations can pull back layers of inertia or hopelessness.  These paintings mark our intention to begin.  They record words that inspire and connect us. Each is a painted wish for our conversations to create the ripples of awareness needed for change.
