I walk from my home to my studio and home again each day. My dog, the true master of my studio, and I see the same street people, shop keepers and vendors most days. The dog stops for her pets, I stop to say "hi" and to see how everyone is doing. But we also pay attention to the sidewalks and streets. They are the "nature" of the city. They give clues to what happened the night before, how tough the weather has been, and other clues to urban life. Here are some the pieces that have been inspired by those views of concrete and asphalt and other details of the city.
