These drawings are inner perceptions. My teacher, Yogacharaya J. Oliver Black, said about the greatest poets, “They await an inner condition where the poetry writes itself.” I have tried in my own way to follow that - the best work seems to happen of its own accord.
Within a relatively small area geographically lie White Sands, Shiprock, Canyon de Chelly, the Petrified Forest, Monument Valley, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon and Arches. Each touches the heart and moves us to reconsider our small view for something grander.
I humbly offer my own artistic interpretations.
There is a poetic essence to any place loved, and to capture that is my goal. Sometimes, seeing we see not, and the best photography allows us the time we might need to overcome that. The Divine is winking at us.
