This series was created in 2011 in response to the realization that we humans require centering. That is, attention to our inner thoughts and impulses. Musicians practice Etudes -musical studies. Some people pray. As an artist, my daily practice is studio work. The pieces included for your consideration are part of a 48 piece set, shown at the University of Louisville in 2011. Individual pieces from the series are included in other traveling exhibitions. The most notable of these is the FiberArt International exhibition, which originated in Pittsburgh and is traveling for two years.
