Finding the essence, paring down all of the unnecessary details to what matters, that was my goal this time around. I did the sketches below at my favorite Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge to get my juices flowing. Then, back at the studio, I dove in. 

Maybe that's the answer, when in doubt, take out what's extraneous, and find the bones.

Richie Havens' music has always been a fave, but watching him string his guitar is mesmerizing.

In my experience, anytime I feel I have found the answer that very feeling changes it into a lifeless tangent. Each answer has it's use among the throng of epiphanies that become our style.

Hi Sam! You know, as soon as I saw that video, I searched through my old arts and crafts supplies and found some combs -- presto chango -- new abstract art making tool!

Hi Kitty! I guess for the curious seeker, each question answered allows new questions to present themselves. Don't you think?
