Long ago I owned a board game called “Rivers, Rails, and Roads” that mesmerized me with the wonderful illustrations. I always wondered whom the artist was who created the visuals for such a lovely game. I wanted to work with the images on the game pieces so I adhered them to my canvas and allowed my own ideas to flow from the images like additional game pieces. The work included a lot of different ideas, thoughts, and pieces that seemed to trace the pattern of previous work but to also be inspired by the game board artist because that artist captured the spirit of a lot of my own imaginings.
