Latest work: "Holding It In"

Sometimes it's difficult to describe what goes into a particular image, why certain colors were chosen, why the square, why thin silver cords were added. And sometimes describing too much prevents you from making your own interpretation.

So let me just say that I created this picture using monoprints, hand-painted rice paper, ink-washed antique papers, and a little more. I'm fond of the monochromatic look, the texture, and the centered-yet-not look of the square element.
