I as I reflect on the development of my artist book Pine Lake, perhaps I was reacting to a very subliminal keepsake that I cherish. Sitting on my workstation for many years is this small fishing memento that my Dad has purchased a long time ago. I can remember this little fisherman sitting on my Dad’s work bench and at the moment, I can not recall when or where he purchase it. But I know that he treasured it, as it probably was his escape talisman, taking him back to his many fishing adventures. A wonderful little memento.
As you tell above, this is also one of the potential items that I was not going to be able to include in the Pine Lake artist book, but in a way, part of it was indeed included.
