All of these dogs are waiting for their persons to get coffee at Sumac Espresso Cafe.
I was at a table drinking mine and drawing them.
Different dogs, different days, different postures,
same expressions. (with one or two exceptions)
Dogs have more variations than any other species
but it is always their nature to be loyal.

What a gift to have a hawk land in our backyard. He stayed here on the fence for at least 30 minutes. Hawks have great overview, flying high and seeing far and wide. In many native traditions they ask us to rise above the details and expand our perspective heavenward to embrace the spiritual element. Today we have received that message.
Every year at this time I am asked to write a summary of all the exhibits that have happened in that year.
I try to remember just how each show has evolved from the previous one. I am reminded of the continuity leading to
this moment now. It is a challenge to return to the past but a good way to enter into the present.
How did this mysterious horse enter into the city
resembling the legendary Trojan horse
with the scaffolding of its making still in place
a painting of the Greeks before they hid inside merges with Sae's photo
a magical meeting of gestures
