Description

The act of creating this image–a paper airplane against a late evening indigo sky–has given me more joy than any photo I have taken.  This has a lot to do with the time in which it was captured–March of this year–when Covid-19 had recently sent our country into lockdown.  It is a reminder to cultivate a certain lightness of spirit in dark times–but the meaning of a work of art is the job of the viewer, not the artist, to determine.  My hope is that gives others the quiet joy it has given me.
