The Rings That Bind Us

I have always been an artist, but didn’t try to make a serious goal until November 2003. On that day in November, I wandered into an exhibition of Walter Inglis Anderson at the Smithsonian Industry and Arts Building (that was then closed shortly after): Everything I see is New and Strange. I found picture after picture, watercolor/pencil/ink drawings on plain 11 x 8 1/2 in sheets of paper of the most amazing images. Everything is connected to everything. There is not one blade of grass or one small creature that is not connected to me. Ever since, I devote at least one hour of my day to looking, trying, and evolving my craft trying to unravel those many connections.
