Third in a series of four works created for Fixing the Earth: NOW! show at Humboldt State University.

I often find that the act of creating new work has a ceremonial aspect to it. Preparation must be done to gather the necessary research, materials, and mindset. For this series of four drawings, the repetitive nature of laying out the design and filling it in became meditative. The making of the work was just as significant as the finished pieces.
