Artists Paul Klee said:  “Drawing is taking a line for a walk.”

This is much how I find it.  You reach for a new sheet of paper; somewhere in the back of your mind is the image, the curve of a horse’s neck.  You begin that line and follow it, the eyes full of wonder, the nostrils wide, the mane as if a flag caught in a wind.

It is a conversation, a listening to the line, the feel of the pen, a searching for meaning, a making of an image, a walk with a friend.

So much in art is a metaphor for life, which from our birth is a following of one special thread, a searching for ones meaning.

And this show, Following the Line, brings together many images and maybe questions about the world.
