On a solo hike in Desolation Wilderness above Lake Tahoe in the summer of 1984, I spent the night at Jabu Lake. Hidden high on the side of a large mountain, Jabu is small enough to throw a stone across.
After dropping my pack I walked around the lake to watch the August sun set across the valley. I came upon this remnant of an ancient tree.
The next day I returned to the spot and created this image.
I found this shell on a beach in the Cayman Islands about 5 years ago. The drawing is many times larger than the tiny shell. The shell is on display below the drawing, along with a magnifying glass.
You Are My Dear One
"I will love you until the umiak flies into the darkness, till the stars turn to fish in the sky, and the puffin howls at the moon.
I will love you, forever and for always, because you are my Dear One."
These words of love are spoken by an Eskimo mother to her daughter at the conclusion of Barbara Joosse' book "Mama, do you love me?"
This collage splashes the colors of the mother's heart across the brilliant arctic night.

This short pose was drawn during a December 2019 session at Studio Paradiso in Seattle. Love of the figure unites a large and diverse community across Puget Sound.

This and the accompanying collage Tiger are interpretations of works by the same names by German artist Franz Marc (1880-1916). They were inspired by color studies done by artist and color theorist Josef Albers and were influenced by my work with Jeffrey Simmons at the Gage Academy of Art.

This imaginary creature was inspired by the skull of a coyote, which is displayed directly below the drawing.
