If You Listen Close, You Can Hear the Loons
(2019) "If You Listen Close, You Can Hear the Loons" is the 1st mixed media drawing in my Campfire Stories Series. This piece is inspired by my own story: As a 7-year-old sitting around the campfire in our woods with my parents, I remember my mom saying, "If you listen close, you can hear the loons." At the time I didn't know a loon was a bird...I only knew the term to describe an insane person who was kept in an asylum. I distinctly felt unsettled thinking there were mad people wandering around somewhere in our woods, howling in the near distance.
