This is not just another New Year resolution, which have a tendency to be broken a few months or even weeks or days after. I cannot predict the future. All I can do is make my intention heard, and it's all I'm doing. I'll try to be more present. I'll make more, I'll post more. I'm going to post some of the work I've been making since the last time.

I made them using recycled plastic containers and fabric remnants, mounted with photographs of the city and painted/drew over them. Sizes are between about 9'-14' inches, and up to 2.5' inches deep. I called this series Citycycle:
