Much of my drawing has always investigated human connection with nature. Several years ago, I read Biophilia by Edward O. Wilson. Written in 1984, this book was ahead of its time with its environmental revelations. The close-up, introspective examination of flora and fauna worlds had a lasting impression on me. He expressed our inherent need to be in a healthy, symbiotic relationship with our planet’s ecosystems of which we are a part. We are a part of this earth’s whole. I am investigating that connection even more in my new series, Elementals. The drawings are less structured, even less representationally figurative than my other work. In 2013, I began to draw these during a limited edition album art project for Pausal’s Along the Mantic Spring (below)… and I realized this the other day in a “haven’t I seen these before?” moment.

They are a combination of my emotional, innate responses and spontaneous expressions of nature.

Yesterday, I pulled out the staples adhering the painting, Calamus,to its board, and untaped the border to show the reveal (clean edges). On the back, I wrote my title, signature and date painted. Lastly, I covered it with protective glassine till it is ready to take to the framers. I savor all the small, careful steps that go into the process of making, learning and caring for art.
