| Border Paintings |

In the spring of 2019, I began making relief paintings on wood with salt, honey and olive oil -- all age-old trade goods. The images are abstracted aerial shots of the Rio Grande as it lies between the U.S. and Mexico. In 2001, many small bridges that had been used for centuries were closed down. So in these Border Paintings, I've stitched in imaginary, suggested bridges.
