So when I was in college at the University of New Hampshire I signed up for a photography course to add credits to my Art Minor. A trip to Boston, MA in the 1960’s allowed me to take many pictures including a man on a park bench – he was just “sitting and waiting”. Recently I found that old photograph and now it spoke to me. My new work uses photo images of my paper Figure/Ground studies shown on the left in fabric – so the old park bench and the new figure/ground studies found their way into this piece now “perking” and almost complete on my design wall. It’s title “Waiting for What!”
