Lay Of The Land

"Lay of the Land" reflects how sensitive yet clueless I have been to the undercurrents that flow within groups and companies of diverse people. I've always been a bit socially inept, particularly when dealing with conflict and politics, yet at the same time my radar picks up very clearly emotional vibes from others. Over the years I've had a few very close extrovert friends patiently explain to me social undercurrents that are quite obvious to them. "I think I finally got the lay of the land after fifty years plus crossed the palm of my hand." My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to meld symbolism with abstract imagery created through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
