Photographed in son Bill’s home (Pocatello, 1997 or 1998), the artist studies “Listening Posts” over the mantel.

The rich, yet subtle, colors in Listening Posts evoke the landscape and environment that would have influenced Sara Joyce’s creative spirit. Joyce referred to this work as ‘listening to outer space for sounds of life’ — likely influenced by her dreams and her curiosity about and study of astronomy, according to her son Bill.
