Grounded: My depiction of keeping myself attached to my roots despite all the changes that get thrown at you. People often need reminders of where they come from as they journey forward in their lives.  Here our Earth Mother has a tattoo of all the flora and fauna that has been replaced with concrete. She also has feather earrings and a fake sunflower in a pot without dirt. These are the objects that she has chosen to keep her on track.

Judge's Comment: “Effective rendering of elements surrounding a centrally placed figure give us a narrative of resignation, and a time to acknowledge and even embrace obstacles and limits. Details serve to empower symbols, urging the viewer to ask, ‘What does it mean?’”
