ARTIST'S STATEMENT: It is one of the only things that survives from my parent's marriage (besides myself and my brother). There are some things that are packed for every move even if mostly ignored. This little book is one such thing. Always close but rarely examined. Until recently. The inscribed note from my father to my mother was written on a date with no personal significance. Which means it was a "just-because" gift. The best kind. As an artist with affinity towards Nature and its intricacies, I was inspired by its romantic imagery. My work is a culmination of a lifetime of interests in the vintage art of old texts, the study and skills of the Adobe empire, personal photography and the perennial desire to create and keep creating. I hope you enjoy the work and the words they accompany. I am slowly posting each chapter and the sources used with links for more information. The plan is to use this as a vehicle to gain some wisdom, solace and insight, and to learn more about the artists who created these works of wonder.
