American SketchbookAmerican Sketchbook NEW!!
The Edge of Possibility: An American Sketchbook is an edited compilation of actual sketchbooks I created on eight different drives across the United States of America, some 22,000 miles more or less. Taking a new road for me, I shared most of these trips. Six crossings were with students and a creative writing teacher. We piled into a van and chased the histories and cultures of American musicians, writers and artists. Freed from driving I worked, recording in color and line, my essential impressions of the land, light, space and sky. The pages of this book share parts of these trips as well as my journeys in the studio. Tiny collages evolved into larger pieces as I attempted to concretize the experiences. If I can paint the remembered sensation successfully, the experience then becomes part of me.

Making art and traveling are the same thing to me - adventure, creation, stepping into the unknown, broadening my awareness on the way so that I may see more, feel more, taste more, become more. Come along....
