The books are simply beautiful. As exciting as it is to be represented in them the greater value is that we are able to learn so much about our country through them. Your interpretation of the people and their industry’s is so well presented. I love that your art work tie families, their industry and the land (or water) together into an inseparable bundle.
I can only wonder at the amount of work that went into creating those pieces, but I am sure that your experiences meeting so many people and seeing so much of our country far out weigh any financial reward that may come.
