September 2 – October 29, 2006

Most of these images were felt, not thought.

The reason for their creation is because they can be created.

Creative Principle at work, playing.

I point in a certain direction for the viewer to complete the equation;

she/he may recognize some aspect of the self in the piece,

if so, two parts of the whole have communicated.

They are glimpses into The Vastness where everything comes from.
