"The Source--Giant Springs" 2009

The Source--Giant Springs" is a large-scale oil painting on canvas. It measures 60" x 48." I
build all my stretcher bars--the wooden frame the canvas is stretched over--myself. No power
tools are used. It's all with hammer and hand saw and staple gun. If you're using power tools--
air hammer, power saw, power staple gun--how nice for you!
A variety of life forms, plant and animal, including a magical bird, a squirrel and a bighorn sheep
are nurtured by the spring. Bubbling thousands of feet to the surface, the Giant Spring is the source of all life's delights.
