Artist StatementI was sitting in the prairie. I was looking at the moving clouds, feeling the wind touching me. In the morning, I walked and the grass was wet with dew. In the evening, I walked and clusters of fireflies burst over the prairie. Two big trees soughed with warm wind. leaves and branches were swaying softly and made balmy sound. After dusk fell, it was quiet, but it was not quiet. Every leaf was busy and gave me sound. As I gave my eyes to them, they showed me more and more of each of their movements. The prairie I saw The sounds I heard are still always in my head and I am following my brush with what I am remembering.
