Rooted Together

Commission for Castle Rock Adventist Hospital 

"Rooted Together," collage by Janice McDonald

I've recently completed a large four-panel collage for the surgical waiting area at the new Castle Rock Adventist Hospital (opening August 1st). I was asked to incorporate the roots of the aspen tree as a symbol of strength, connectedness and community. Did you know the aspen tree is considered to be the world's largest organism? Really! Whole groves are connected by a single root system.

I stumbled upon a wonderful quote while in the midst of this work… funny how that happens…

“Our lives are like islands in the sea, or like trees in the forest. The maple and the pine may whisper to each other with their leaves… But the trees also commingle their roots in the darkness underground, and the islands also hang together through the ocean’s bottom.” 
     —William James, psychologist and philosopher (1842-1910)

Lovely and inspiring thoughts.

Check out some new work at aBuzz Gallery in Denver's RiNo / River North Art District where I'll be showing with the Expand artists in August. Hope you can drop by! Details at right.

Enjoy the rest of summer,
