It is dark. A man sings.  All of the beautiful things float towards us - a garden is made, stars fill the sky, birds fly free.

This screen print is inspired by all those days riding in the furnace that the sun can be….when we felt like we were cooking from the inside…..particularly on those flat long plains in Uzbekistan, and the low lying areas of Tajikistan, next to the Afghan border.  I’m usually one for the sun…I love it……but sometimes she can be a bit domineering!  I sun exposed this screen print in our back yard…kind of fitting really.
