Who learns will love and not destroy,
The creature's life, the flower's joy.
Attention is the beginning of devotion.
My best inspiration often comes outdoors.
My best parenting, too, has happened in the woods--no credit to me, all credit to the woods.
So I was very happy, delighted really, to be the artist interpreting and recording a year-long collaboration between two parents, two school-aged kids, and nature. Each parent and child had a season to be the collector of favorite images from outdoor family adventures. I loved looking through their eyes and considering the personal and universal meanings in the images they chose.
For each season, each person, I made a relief print, each 8"x12" and printed over watercolor.
