Think Big, Start Small

It would be great to be able to talk to creatures in nature to see what they are really thinking.  Just look at the photo above, taken by me at a local nature spot close by.  Two caterpillars, one large and one small, or is it just the perspective of the photograph?  And do either […]

Is Your Bowl Empty?

The photo with this blog is the latest Oberlin work of art for me…it is the only Oberlin work of art to date for me, but it spoke loud and strong to me, and it soon became a part of my logo with the muted colors of my branding logo and the metalwork butterfly given […]

The Elusive Butterfly in Life…

Whenever you […]
