The painting below started with an asparagus fern gone wild, seeking light in the middle of winter. A frond hit the ceiling in its quest, and over a period of many days circled around and around in desperation and confusion as it followed what little light it could discern. When I took pity on its jumbled state (see detail photo) and cut it off, I was astounded at the complexity of the journey it took without leaving home. I pressed the resultant stalk for some months to dry it thoroughly.
