"Onward", as it developed in my sketchbook.

"Onward", a steel commission for a private residence along the beach in Bay St. Louis, MS for a family who wanted to capture the spirit of little girls playing together outdoors. Their home is located on what was once "Camp Onward", the first integrated girls summer camp in the state.

Using flowers as a way to express something less tangible. It comforted me to read that Georgia O'Keefe worked in this same way. She found something that allowed her to express what was within in a way that invited others to join in her thoughts on their own terms...some saw lady parts, some saw what it meant to be a woman, some started to look more closely at the world around them. Living with art reminds us that there is always more.
