The art of changeability using materials and pigments gathered from where I live and the places that I visit. I call this Change-Process Art and describe it as human and natural actions coming together to create an open ended work of art that has the possibility to change even as we have the possibility through time and space to alter our perception of it and our interaction with it.

November 2011: The Potato Eaters (after van Gogh)
A strange thing happened between here...
...it spoke to me of potatoes resting under their hill...
...and there. But as I worked on it I began to see distorted faces with bulging eyes.
Wet image of drawing.
Then I remembered van Gogh's, The Potato Eaters. Another cosmic connection? Or just my imagination?
What do you think?
