cognitive dissonance as French road sign, SAUF RIEVRAINS over top, Carmel tree underlay...
SAUF RIVERAINS (residents only) & Monterey Cypress
acrylic and ink on paper
10" x 10"

French road signs can warn you not to enter the road... SAUF RIVERAINS means that only residents are allowed from this point onward.... "Cognitive dissonance" is one term for the moments when we cannot reconcile all our beliefs, and we are made uncomfortable.... my cure for this recently was to visit the Monterey peninsula and see the trees blown sideways by the very strong winds.
