Title: “Mr. Leadville”

Genre: Surrealism

When I draw, I am in the woods. Though I may sit on a city bench or be confined to the four walls of a dwelling, when I turn to a new page and take in a breath of air I can feel the moss of old stone walls against my back, and the prickles of beetles crawling through my arm hair. The concavities and convexities of the trees give me every shape and line I could ever need and are unlike any you will find in the curves and angles of city streets. I sing, walk, run, and jump through every page of my sketch book, thankful for the breath, thankful for the pulp of the trees that gave me my canvass and cognoscente of the true and endless gift this life truly is.
