This is a continuing series which uses the book as a canvas. I began doing these after taking a workshop with Arthur Gonzalez in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The earlier ones, from 2001, were more autobiographical in that they dealt with places I had lived or events in my life. In 2004 I continued with the books, but as with much of my other work my imagery took on a broader perspective.
