not all that glitters is gold

   I have been working with a friend to make art about the land we love and the land that we feel intrinsically connected with. This is florida. This is our swampy homes. The marshes and the heat our a dangerous comfort. We realize they are beautiful, powerful, and hungry. This is out mother. We are giving reverence to our childhood, our home, our past.

Lately I have been painting these emotionally charged watercolors. For the past couple of years I have been doing self portraits which sort of serve as place holders in time. They mark the events in my life with my son. They show me where I have been and where I am. They serve as a visual diary.
