Bluffs, 2011

This book depicts the bluffs and lake that I see from the south-facing windows of my house each day. It is the horizon that is the backdrop for everything that I do, day-to-day. Since I love where I live and hope to spend the rest of my days here, I think of this scene as both my literal and figurative horizon.
