The Western Haikus


This is another series in homage to the west combining my interest in haiku poetry and art. I have had the opportunity, recently past (2015), of working with a wonderful group of men doing some teaching of both. The Western Haikus was one of my first series along with Angels of Protection, which I began it in 2002. Numbers 1, 4, 5, and 6 are all pre-digital, and utilize the technique of building the pieces in art, or producing (as in Number 1) a black and white print, from the small original, to my specifications and then re-coloring with dyes and acrylic paints. The latest images, in the series, numbers 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12, are all made in art.
