I made these works during a time when the future felt unsettled and somewhat scary: the grid format provided structure. I collaged pages from old books with text about “keep on keeping on” through hard times, along with favorite cards that friends had sent.  The tenor of these paintings invoke the spiritual virtues of tenacity, of continued evolvement towards something better.
