Engaging in the everyday and the timeless, the local and the global, human life and nature, society and art, growing things and making food. These drawings with words were made in May and June 2010. Each drawing brings together ideas, images, words, activities, and references that are primarily of the time required to experience, consider, and execute them as drawings. Dozens of different drawings could be substituted during that same time period. It was spring and the beginning of summer during their drafting. The sights, sounds and activities of living and working at riverrun, a little bungalow in Cambridge Woods, Milwaukee, were the field of experience. Outside events, from local animals, insects and plants to social and world-wide environmental challenges rub up against the internal references to art, literature, music, and living.
