Watching the process and evolution of an idea is fascinating. Often we get a glimpse of an idea, we follow it, not sure where it will take us. We even question the validity of the path, but we continue.
And the path, is rarely a straight line. But the journey is the adventure.
What began as an idea- my cutlery out of wire, pulp, encaustic and collage, then a dream about butterfly nets, then I began to make my own nets, then photograph them, and now the drawings from their shadows. ah, the shadows. I do love shadows.

Sometimes you know where you are going and you still end up somewhere different. Sometimes you don't know where you're going- or even where you are- but you still keep going.
But always, you must follow your heart.
