New images are starting to result from scanning and reworking existing drawings, paintings, words, photographs that are being stored in notebooks and on studio shelving. 

My practice study continues to focus on the teachings of Dogen Zenji, founder of the Soto Zen sect, which originated in Japan in the 13th century. Dogen has become increasingly important to Western students of Buddhism in recent years.

Several images were produced as a response to Dogen’s essay called  called “Genjokoan” and the images referring to “myriad things” reflect some of its teachings. In the essay he tells his students that “ study Buddhism is to study the self; to study the self is to forget the self and become actualized by the myriad things.”  The way to do this, according to Dogen, is through sitting meditation.
