In this artwork with my poem, I talk about being an artist. I look inward at creating different paths to take in my life, shaped by introspection and my imaginings. As I look out, I am often moved by watching the loons navigate their course on the lake. The act of drawing them and using them metaphorically in my piece weaves together their journey of traversing the waters with my journey. I am inspired by their grace and beauty.
