The primary series is the Sense of Place. I work back and forth between the two. When I need  clarity or to redirect myself  I go the black and white palette and  focus on the horizon line in the Facing West Series.

I have been a presenter for the Pecha Kucha series here in Maine and talked about the body of work, A Sense of Place. I described my working methods, I included some quotes from Wendell Berry. It is an important series  for me since over time  it chronicled my move to Maine. I worked on the Facing West series from my studio in CT which faced west and across a lake. Now, my ‘West” series is from a beach looking out over the islands of Penobscot Bay. I find that the simple  reduction of the horizon to be a powerful image.  -Kitty Winslow, 2012
