Latest work: "San Andreas Fault"

Invariably, what I set out to create turns out nothing like I thought it would be, which is the delightful thing about what I do. If I knew what I was going to make, there'd be no point in making it. (Which may or may not make sense.) In this case I combined my photos of texture on the side of a fishing boat, a reflection in the water, a photo I took of someone's calligraphy practice, and more to create this image that makes me think of faults, earthquakes, epicenters, etc. I've been re-reading a book called Assembling California by John McPhee, and so I've got geology on my mind, apparently. ©Carol Leigh
