My photographic journeys, projects, and inspirations with some book-making and printmaking along the way.

A series I started working on and never completed. I think it’s time to revisit. 

The Secrets in My Blood Stream
——-
Lately I’ve been drawn to finger painting. Feeling the paint and going with the flow. Not thinking; no real goal of what this is suppose to represent or look like. I find out what it is after I finish, if anything at all. It’s a good way of freeing your mind of the worries in your life. Just doing, not thinking. Kind of like when you’re really small and you just scribble because it is fun.
