Growing up and living in the rural west means you see a lot of abandoned buildings – old houses, schools, barns, etc. Many of them are falling down, and over the course of years you see the advancement of time as the vegetation takes over and the building slumps more and more.

This installation took place while on a road trip across Wyoming to an arts conference with a couple of my art peeps, Do and Mitch. We made lots of stops along the way and had great discussions about art. They and my other art friends challenge me, encourage me and keep me from feeling abandoned in the middle of nowhere as an artist.
