    Thank you. It’s a back yard view of a house in Allentown and I took the original photo for the same reason – all the different elements and how they interacted with each other.

    Thank you. What a great thing to tell me, I appreciate it! I try to pare down the images to the parts that really matter. This is especially important in doing tiles – the glazes and the clay seem to need simplicity to get the image to look its best. I do like contrast and boldness as opposed to subtlety, I think!

    Thank you. This fountain is in West Park in Allentown PA and is a well-loved sight for me-I do a show here each June since the 1990’s. I have many memories of this location and it’s a pleasure to revisit them in this way.

    Thank you, yes, we are in a peaceful healing stretch and I hope to make a sketch of him next week without crutches (though the brace will be around for many more weeks). He is doing well and should have full function of his leg in the end. We are grateful.
