Meeting with Smokey. “From Dialogue, The Fine Art of Conversation, a wonderful sourcebook Mark put together. The painting refers to a note my father wrote as I described a run-in friends and I had with a huge black bear while camping in Glacier National Park. Of course, the bear terrorized us for the better part of a night, but time has softened the memory. I imagined the coffee as freshly brewed.” Gouache on paper, 2004.
