"life is a journey" I abhor quaint catch phrases and trendy idioms and make every attempt to interrupt their proliferation. The ones that annoy me the most are those, which accurately apply to my life. It is far too often stated that, "the destination is far less significant than the journey." Unfortunately, this one is true. This collection contains the by-products of 3 much larger, commissioned pieces. My more ambitious works involve the integration of several unrelated media manipulated with a variety of techniques. Prior to the final assembly, each phase of the project requires a degree of experimentation to achieve a specific effect. These prints represent the effort involved in attaining the finished product. Ultimately, they serve as a historical record of a "journey" through the Zen of tenacity.
