I was invited to show some work at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Tuscaloosa (near where our lake house is located) and knowing new work was not necessary, I decided to resurrect a series that was instrumental in my transition from detailed subject matter to abstraction.

The series began as watercolors, became mixed media and eventually works on canvas. Most were completed in the early 90's... maybe there were about 75-80 in the series.
